PRESS RELEASE REDUCTION IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT FARES

The general public may be aware that on Saturday, October 29, 2022, a 19% increase in public transportation charges went into effect as a result of protracted talks with stakeholders.

It was required to include stakeholders in thinking about a review of the fares in accordance with the Administrative Instrument because of the recent drops in the price of fuel products.

In order to reach an agreement on a reasonable level of fee reduction comparable with the current fuel prices, a number of negotiating meetings with stakeholders were organized.

Following these discussions and taking into account the difficulties faced by drivers, commuters, and the general public, we have decided to cut the current transportation fares by 15.3%.

THE NEW FARES BEGIN ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2022.

The following categories of road transport operations are covered by The Fore.

SHARED TAXIS

INTRA-CITY (TRO-TRO)

INTERCITY (LONG-DISTANCE)

HAULAGE

“We kindly request all Commercial Transport Operators to comply with the new fares and post the same at their loading terminals.

We further request all Operators, Commuters, and the General Public to kindly cooperate for the successful implementation of the new fares.

We take this opportunity to assure all Transport Operators and the General Public that we will continue to work in their interest” The sentence was read.

Earlier, during a meeting, the GPRTU had declared that they were not in a hurry to lower the fares and instead wanted to see if the present decrease in petroleum products was sustainable.
