Transport fares increased by 15%

Transport fares have been increased by 15 per cent effective Saturday, 11 July 2020.

This was agreed upon by the Transport Unions and the Ministry of Transport.

Drivers have been directed to pick fewer passengers to enable them to observe social distancing in cars due to the coronavirus.

As such cars that pick four passengers have been asked to pick three while those that pick three have been asked to pick two.

According to the drivers, the move has brought untold hardship on them as fuel prices remain the same.

The drivers, thus, threatened to strike if fuel prices were not reduced or the decision was not reversed to allow them to pick passengers at full capacity.

At a stakeholder meeting today, Wednesday, 7 July 2020 between the driver unions and the Transport Ministry, it was agreed that effective Saturday, 11 July 2020, the transport fares should be increased by 15% although the drivers were pushing for a 50% increment.
