The South African government has committed itself to creating “a better life for all”. Furthermore, government performance became important for the South African government with the introduction of the Public Finance Management Act. Backeberg (2005) uses systems thinking to propose a holistic transportation performance quantification framework to achieve the above. The purpose of this research is to validate the above framework by demonstrating its practicality and usefulness. This is done by populating the framework with representative transportation statistics from various sources. The study demonstrates how improvements could be prioritised if adequate information were to be available.
