In line with its Administrative Instrument, the Road Transport Operators have reviewed prices of the various component that go into running of commercial transport services and has therefore, increased public transport fares by 10 per cent.
According to the Road Transport Operators, the increment is to accommodate predominantly an increase in fuel prices.
Outlining those that are affected by the new fares which takes effect from Monday, September 16th, 2019 in a statement, the Union pointed Intracity (Trotro), Intercity (long distance) and shared taxis.
The above indicates that all those who use any of these means of transportation will pay a higher fare from the said date.
However, the Union has urged members of the Road Transport Operators to comply with the new fares and post the fare list at the loading terminals to avoid any confrontation with the travelling public.
“We further request members, commuters and the general public to kindly co-operate for successful implementation of the new fares,” it stated.
