South African transportation is generally observed as uncoordinated with hitches and
pitfalls. The ease of public transportation movement is highly dangerous with unguaranteed
safety and comfort. Despite the funds budgeted for public transport restructuring and
management in South Africa running into billions, the situation is still left exasperated.
However, the solution to the transport system is rather a long-term infrastructure plan in
which improvement can be achieved in a piece meal manner. This study provides a solution
to the challenges faced in public transportation by improving the public transport system via
application of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) to improve safety and reduce
congestion resulting to a sustainable and efficient transportation system. Quantitative
analysis was carried out on public transportation vehicle owners, drivers, public
transportation users and non-users within Free State to assess the current state of public
transportation that could potentially be solved by ITS and the challenges likely to be faced.
The use of questionnaires was used to assist in identifying elements needed for successful
integration of ITS into South African Public Transportation.
