Who we are


SA Taxi is an independently owned commercial business. It is part of the Transaction Capital group of companies which listed on the JSE in June 2012.


SA Taxi was founded in 1996 and now has more than 1 500 employees. It is based in Midrand in Gauteng, but has a national customer base.


We focus exclusively on building entrepreneurs through the medium of the taxi industry. Of the estimated 250 000 taxis on the roads in South Africa, SA Taxi finances more than 36 000.


Because we are not a bank, funded by the amounts in customer accounts, we have to source the money we lend to our clients from, for instance, foreign and local direct investment. However, in the world of international finance, the informal nature of the taxi industry makes it a high risk investment. In order to mitigate their risk the interest rates charged are at a premium and not comparable to other formal banking institutions.


The taxi industry is South Africa’s heartbeat | SA Taxi

The taxi industry ensures that South Africans, including the vast majority of the country’s workforce, get to and from their destinations – on time at the lowest cost.
