School van charges increased by Rs. 1000!

The All Ceylon School Van Operators Association says that the school van fare will have to be increased by Rs. 1000.

They point out that although the union had earlier decided not to increase school van fares following the increase in fuel prices by Lanka Indian Oil Company (LIOC), but said that this decision had to be taken following the fuel price hike by the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation from last night (18).

School van drivers are being burdened with difficulties in accessing fuel and have no choice but to increase fares, they said.
