bus fare increase for commuters
By Chanel September
Bus fares are expected to increase by more than four percent a trip on August 28, following the 23-percent diesel fuel increase in April.
However Golden Arrow Bus Services still awaits the department of transport's approval to increase its fares.
The company's fare increase will affect all passengers, including pensioners and scholars, and all cash fares with effect on August 28.
Golden Arrow said a weekly clip card bought on August 27 would be valid until the second week of September and a monthly ticket bought on the same day will be accepted until October 3.
