This is how bus fares were increased

The Cabinet yesterday (15) granted approval for the increase of bus fares by 6.56%, based on the fuel price hike.

Accordingly, it was decided to allow the minimum bus fare to remain at Rs. 10, while the Transport Commission released the revised bus fares today (16). 

 Previous fare              New fare

 10                                10

13                                 14

17                                 18

21                                23

25                                27

29                                31

 However, the bus associations protested against the government decision to increase bus fares by 6.56% and have threatened to strike from mid night today.
