A new taxi rank, that cost R2,2-million to construct, will begin operating at the University of the Free State (UFS) on Monday, 3 November 2008.

The new taxi rank is a massive improvement on the old one, with many improvements for thousands of commuters who come on to the campus.

The new features include:
underfloor heating
radio broadcasts
rest rooms
anti-crime features
sufficient seating (inside and outside)

The new taxi rank is situated at the DF Malherbe Drive gate, close to the Agriculture Building and within walking distance of the Bloemgate shopping centre. From Monday taxis will no longer operate from the parking area at Odeion.

The new taxi rank is also closer to Thakaneng Bridge and will provide taxi commuters with much easier access to the rest of the campus.

Apart from the fact that the rank has been relocated, the rest of the service provided by the minibus-taxi operators will remain the same.
