Bus And Train Fares Set For Highest Increase In Years

Bus And Train Fares Set For Highest Increase In Years

If this mooted fare increase gets approved, it will be the highest fare increase for years. If this happens, fares could go up by $0.10, the maximum increase that can be allowed under the current fare formula, a measure implemented from 2018 to the year 2022. While some might say that $0.10 is a small price to pay, if taken into account each trip a person makes he needs to cough up $0.10 extra, someone might face up to $15 total of increased fares per month.
