Oh my goodness the FARE HIKE increase starts today (March 21, 2012). From the standard P8.00 for 1st kilometer it will now be P8.50!!
The .50c fare increase was approved by The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB. LTFRB Chairman Jaime Jacob said the increase will be effective immediately.
Even before the fare increase, the tricycle here in our area already increased their fare from P20- P25.00 since last week. Yay.. with the fare increase, more people will just try to walk as much as they can if it’s just near just like what my mom and I did when we went to the grocery last night.
