Rea Vaya和出租車業者在談判過程中達成協議，車行每報廢一輛車就替一位員工安排一份工作。結果其中200名前出租車司機獲得公車司機的工作，另有150人受僱成爲各Rea Vaya站的迎賓人員和乘警。
過去隸屬於大約翰尼斯堡出租車協調會（Greater Johannesburg Taxi Council）和前六大管理（Top Six Management）機構的車主，現擁有經營市區快速公交系統PioTrans公司66.7%的股份。其餘股份持有者則為約翰尼斯堡市政府。
約翰尼斯堡於2006年通過採用快速公交系統作為長期大衆運輸解決方案，並於 2009年8月開始上路，遠早於2010年6月和7月世界杯賽事開始日期。Rea Vaya巴士行駛於蘇為托區和約翰尼斯堡之間，途經足球城和埃利斯公園體育場。
目前，Rea Vaya有143部巴士平均每天運送3萬名乘客前往約 30個車站。
More than 350 Johannesburg taxis were scrapped last week, when the owners handed over their operating licenses and officially bought their shares in PioTrans, the company contracted to run the city's bus rapid transit system, Rea Vaya.
The event took place in the scrapping yard in Nancefield, Soweto, surrounded by many dilapidated taxis. After the batteries were removed, the taxis were placed into a compactor which crushed them into a rectangular shape about a metre-and-a-half in size.
The scrap metal will be recycled in the city's largest scrapping exercise to date. Taxi owners used the proceeds from scrapping the vehicles to buy PioTrans shares.
During negotiations between Rea Vaya and the taxi industry it was agreed that one employee per affected vehicle would be given a job. As a result, 200 former taxi employees got work as bus drivers and 150 were employed at Rea Vaya stations as ambassadors and marshals.
Former taxi owners from the Greater Johannesburg Taxi Council and Top Six Management, now own 66.7 percent of the shares in the bus operating company PioTrans. The remainder is owned by the City of Johannesburg.
PioTrans has appointed a board that includes 13 taxi operators who invested in it.
Rea Vaya's bus operating company was originally established as an interim measure, pending the raising of share capital and scrapping of the taxis. This interim company, Clidet, was handed over to the new company, PioTrans, at the beginning of February.
Shareholders in PioTrans are the nine taxi operator investor companies and one trust that have been working with the city of Johannesburg to create Rea Vaya. There are now 316 operators who are shareholders.
Rea Vaya is the city's flagship public transport project. City officials say it rolls back the legacy of apartheid spatial planning and poor public transport infrastructure, and improves the quality of life.
Johannesburg adopted bus rapid transit as a long-term mass transit solution in 2006, with the first buses up and running from August 2009, in plenty of time for the World Cup matches in June and July 2010. Rea Vaya buses run between Soweto and Johannesburg, passing both Soccer City and Ellis Park stadiums.
Currently, Rea Vaya transports an average of 30,000 passengers a day on 143 buses that travel to some 30 stations.
