By Chanel September
Golden Arrow bus fares are set to go up by 4.5% on Monday.
This after the Transport Department has approved the notion. The company says that the rise is due to a 23% diesel fuel increase in April this year.
The new fare rate will mostly affect cash fares of pensioners and scholars.
According to the Cape Times a trip from Khayelithsa to Cape Town now costs clip card holders R5, 60 and R17, 60 on cash fares.
Pensioners and scholars will however pay R3, 35 and R6, 85.
