    did they reduce the fares when the prices were dropped, i am pretty sure they didn't.

    Unchikun Sunday, 13 May 2018 02:24 PM

    They did not. They were forced to do it.

    Oops! Is that proportional to the kerosene used by the private buses. Or it is an indication of the percentage of kerosene used ?

    3 wheel guys and bus guys rule. The govt. Should give the public transport system to a foreign country. Cheaper and would be a better service.

    Sodha Sunday, 13 May 2018 02:33 PM

    Never reduced the bus fare when fuel prices came down. The guys are requesting a 50% increase in minimum fare. Crazy bunch. Let them strike. Of course the public will suffer TEMPORARILY. But these won't strike for more than 2 days.

    Sambo Sunday, 13 May 2018 05:44 PM

    Who is this guy come from no where and requesting for a minimum of Rs.15.00. Please go on strike we will manage it for a few days.

    These bus and 3wheel fellows are bigger thieves than politician. They will rot in hell. Gov must cancel permits if go on strike and give them to private company or sign FTA for foreign company to do transport.

    What has the government done during the last 3 years for public transport. Nothing? No, I am wrong , the government imports luxury cars for the ministers ( I think ministers are also public) and give tax free permits to MPs and privileged government servants. Now face the black mail and increase bus fares.

    Go to Hell...Did ACPBOF reduce the price when they were pumping Kerosene to their buses???????????????????

    SLCitizen Monday, 14 May 2018 08:54 AM

    They need to think about the earnings of travelers before increasing fare! Good income earner use ther own transportation than public transport , Nothing to say bec we people are much used to price adaption rather opposing it!
