Long-distance bus fares expected to go up

THE Government has agreed in principle to raise long-distance bus fares, said Pan Malaysia Bus Operators Association president Datuk Mohamad Ashfar Ali.

However, the margin of the increase will be known only in three months, after the Government has carried out a survey, reported China Press.

“We still are not sure whether the Government will increase the petrol subsistence or allow us to raise bus fares,” Mohamad Ashfar said.

He said the Government was aware of the plight of bus operators after a 50-year-old bus company ceased operations recently.

He said the association had urged the Government to allow a 100% fare increase.
