The Road Transport Operators are set to reduce prices of lorry fares by 15.3% effective Monday 19th December 2022
This was clearly noted in a Press Release by the Operators on Friday, 16th December, 2022. The missive reads;
Reduction in Public Transport Fares
The General Public may recall that on Saturday, 29th October 2022, a 19 percent upward adjustment in public transport fares took effect after intense negotiations with stakeholders
With the recent reductions in the price of petroleum products, it became necessary to engage stakeholders to consider a review of the fares in line with the Administrative Instrument.
Consequently, a series of negotiation meetings were held with stakeholders to agree on an acceptable level of fare reduction commensurate with the current fuel prices.
Following these negotiations and in consideration of the plight of Drivers, Commuters and the General Public, we have resolved to reduce the existing transport fares by 15.3 percent
The New Fares Take Effect From Monday 19th December, 2022.
The Fares cover the following types of Road Transport Operations:
- Shared Taxis
- Intra-city (Tro-tro)
- Intercity (Long-distance)
We kindly request all Commercial Transport Operators comply with the new fares and Post the same at their loading terminals.
We further request all Operators, Commuters, and the General Public to kindly cooperate for the successful implementation of the new fares.
We take this opportunity to assure all Transport Operators and the General Public that we will continue to work in their interest.
