NEW BUS FARES OFFICIAL AND FINAL-TAYALI

MINISTER of Transport and Logistics Frank Tayali says the new bus fare recommendations by The ROAD Transport and Safety Agency -RTSA- are official and final.

Yesterday, Bus and Taxi Owners Association of Zambia (BTOAZ) national chairman Sydney Chewe said members of the association have rejected the reduced bus fares which RTSA has proposed.

The Road Transport and Safety Agency last week announced a reduction in bus fares effective August 7, 2022.

The reduction was due to the Energy Regulation Board’s decision to reduce the fuel pump prices by K3.56 per litre for petrol and K3.14 for diesel.

RTSA public relations manager Fredrick Mubanga guided bus operators to revise bus fare charts and display them in all busses without fail.

The agency reduced Intercity long distance bus fares by 14%, Copperbelt Local and other towns K5.00, Lusaka Local and other towns K5.00, Inter-Mine/Peri-Urban Copperbelt K7.00, Lusaka Peri-Urban K7.00.

The new bus fares being effective 7th August, 2022.
