Hazvinei Tsitsi Tamuka Moyo graduated in June with her MPhil in Transport Studies from the Department of Civil Engineering. Her supervisor was Prof Romano Del Mistro and her thesis topic was “An investigation of the perceived consequences to employees of reducing employment related trip end choices in Cape Town.” Her research looked at the accessibility and affordability of transport for marginalised communities who spend above 10% of their salary on transport costs. By getting people employment closer to home, not only will it reduce their travelling costs but also address some of the climate change issues. In July, Tsitsi will be presenting a paper at the SA Transport Conference in Pretoria.
