Police have been deployed around the Gautrain station in Sandton following incidents of harassment.

Metered taxi drivers have allegedly been preventing Uber drivers from operating in the area.

Uber drivers say they're being harassed and intimidated while operating from the Gautrain station in Sandton.

Clients who want to use Uber taxis from the Gautrain station are being asked to walk a distance away to other locations, to ensure their safety.

Metered taxi drivers are adamant that they will not allow Uber to operate in the area until their business is regulated by government.
