The Bus Fare review report is now with the Ministry of Economy.
Infrastructure Minister Jone Usamate confirms this saying once the report is handed to the Land Transport Authority board than a decision will be made.
Usamate says a bus fare review committee was set up earlier who were tasked to look at the cost and revenue of bus operators.
“Once again our focus is to make sure in that case that the bus operators continue because they are very important segment, they provide the public transport. At the same time we want to look at the interest of the traveling public. We don’t want bus fares to rise too much and at the same time bus operators they are also able to survive.”
The committee was also set up to come up with recommendations on whether there will be any increase in the bus fares.
