The General Public may recall that on Saturday, 29 October, 2022, a 19 percent upward adjustment in public transport fares took effect after intense negotiations with stakeholders.
With the recent reductions in the price of petroleum products, it became necessary to engage stakeholders to give consideration to a review of the fares in line with the Administrative Instrument. Consequently, series of negotiation meetings were held with stakeholders to agree on an acceptable level of fare reduction commensurate with the current fuel prices.
Following these negotiations and in consideration of the plight of Drivers, Commuters and the General Public, we have resolved to reduce the existing transport fares by 15.3 percent
THE NEW FARES TAKE EFFECT FROM MONDAY 19TH DECEMBER, 2022. The Fares
cover the following types of Road Transport Operations:
1. SHARED TAXIS
2. INTRA-CITY (TRO-TRO)
3. INTERCITY (LONG DISTANCE)
