ZUPCO, Kombi Operators Ink Deal

Officials from the Zimbabwe United Passenger Company (ZUPCO) on Friday inked a deal with some kombi operators to bring their vehicles under the parastatal’s franchise.

By late afternoon, a number of commuter omnibuses with ZUPCO stickers were transporting passengers from Harare CBD at a cost of $2. ZUPCO acting chief executive officer Evaristo Madangwa had this to say:

People were struggling to move from one point to the other and we decided to cast our net wider, this time including kombis in our system.

We will be slowly growing our capacity as time moves. If people see a kombi with a ZUPCO sticker, they should pay the same amount they would have paid on a bus.

Under the deal, ZUPCO will handle the day-to-day running of the kombis and also determine route-mapping, times and provide a conductor. The kombi owners will be paid fortnightly at mutually agreed rates.
