The mission of the Eastern Cape Department of Transport is to provide, facilitate, develop, regulate and enhance a safe, affordable and reliable multimodal transport system that is integrated with land uses to ensure optimal mobility of people and goods in support of socio-economic growth and development.

The Department's strategic goals are to promote good governance and transportation excellence by providing enabling business processes for the core functions of the Department of Roads and Transport in relation to management, corporate and financial services; maximise mobility and accessibility through public transport by planning, regulating and facilitating the provision of public transport services and infrastructure, through own provincial resources and through cooperation with national and local authorities, as well as the private sector, in order to enhance the mobility of all communities, particularly those currently without or with limited access; integrate traffic management in order to enable and ensure that all road users consciously use the roads in a lawful and safe manner; create economic empowerment opportunities in the transportation sector and alleviate poverty by ensuring delivery of accessible services through integrated, socially just, developmental and empowering processes in order to improve the quality of life of communities by way of community development programmes.
