“In line with the Administrative Arrangement on Public Transport Fares, the Roads Transport Operators have reviewed the prices of the various components that go into the running of commercial transport service and have increased public transport fares by 10% across all categories of the services. This is to accommodate predominantly  increase in the price of fuel,” it said.

The new fare will cover intra-city (tro-tro), intercity (long distance) and shared taxi road transport operations.
