This article explores public transport mechanisms and strategies for promoting mobility and access in the Johannesburg Central Business District. Transportation as an infrastructure is crucial in promoting sustainable urban development. Central to this debate are the concepts mobility and accessibility as requirements for achieving sustainable public transport goals and objectives. The advent and the demands of global integration and sustainable living have created the need to re-examine the scope, dynamics and developments of the urban transportation system. The City of Johannesburg as a metropolitan authority has an obligation to design, explore and implement constructive urban public transport mechanisms and strategies. In this article, the existing legislation, organisational arrangements, systems and processes designed to promote sustainable public transport in the City of Johannesburg will be examined (this being part of local government service delivery).
