Here's Some Bad News For Public Transport Users This Morning

It goes without a doubt that life in South Africa is getting more and more expensive while people's income stays at the same level, this is a bad sign of the future economically. 

From electricity shortages to a fuel hike each time, everything happening to the economy is affecting the daily lives of the public. While petrol is always going up, it surely means that the prices for public transport also become in line to go up. 

This is why From Friday, 1 July, minibus commuters will now have to pay an additional R5. The fare increase will impact both long and short-distance commuters and is said to be the highest increase to date. Taxi drivers said the rise was unavoidable because their input expenses are rising while they have to make monthly vehicle payments. 

This will surely hit hard on the pockets of those who are traveling to and from work everyday. According to BusinessTech, fuel prices could be going up by R2.30-R2.50 litre which means that petrol could cost between R24 and R26 per litre. The fuel hike announcement will be made on Wednesday, 6 July.
