The reopening of the Old Taxi Park remains uncertain.

In May 2020, Kampala Capital City Authority-KCCA started renovations in the park and planned to complete the works in three months. However, to date, the park remains closed with works partially done.

KCCA Council resolved to open the park on October 20 as works continue, a decision that hit a snag after five companies that sued KCCA for trespassing on their land secured an interim injunction halting the re-opening.

Moses Birungi Mawejje, the Spokesperson of Kampala Operational Taxi Stages Association-KOTSA says that they have held several meetings with KCCA who have informed them that they are in talks with landowners.

Birungi hopes that the park will be re-opened before the end of the month to ease the movement of passengers especially at a time when the economy has opened and schools are set to re-open.
