The NPTR was established under the provisions of the National Land Transport Act of 2009, Act 05 of 2009. The functions of the NPTR as contained in the Act are:

  • Receive and decide on applications relating to operating for interprovincial transport and accreditation of tourist transport; and
  • Monitor and oversee public transport in the country in general and the activities of the Provincial and Municipal Regulatory Entities

However, the NPTR will for now only receive applications for accreditation of tourist transport services. Applications for interprovincial services will be phased in at a later stage. Operators will be notified accordingly.
