The Land Transport Authority is urging the public not to pay the increased minibus fare imposed by drivers at different locations around the country.
Instead, LTA is requesting the public to take their stand and report such matters.
LTA confirms minibus fares are regulated and as such there is no approach from LTA for any fare increases.
The authority says operators who increase fares without approval will be fined through the TIN mechanism.
Operators can also have their license revoked or suspended if they are found demanding for increased fares.
Meanwhile, minibus drivers have increased fares for Ba-Lautoka from $2 to $2.50 while fares between Nausori-Suva is now $2 compared to $1.50 previously.
