Dr Herrie Schalekamp is a member of the academic staff at the Centre for Transport Studies at the University of Cape Town. His research and teaching at the Centre focus on public transport reform in Sub-Saharan African cities, particularly on how the minibus operations providing mass transport in these cities might be supported and restructured to better respond to urban mobility needs. His research pursuits, often in collaboration with practitioners, include explorations of the business aspirations of minibus operators, alternative mechanisms through which public agencies can build positive relationships with minibus operators, and the potential of new technologies to improve the reach and quality of minibus services. Building on his research, Herrie has been closely involved in a municipally-funded professional development programme for minibus operators in Cape Town, as well as in efforts to build public sector capacity in the public transport arena in cities in and beyond South Africa.
