LAHORE The transporters have decided to decrease the fares by five per cent at various inter-city routes on Saturday. Three days earlier, the bus and wagon owners had raised the fare by 10 to 15 per cent and the decision had been announced 'following the raise in petroleum products and unavailability of CNG. At a meeting held here on Saturday, All Pakistan Transport Owners Federation has decided to reduce fares by only five per cent following the decision of government to decrease the oil prices. We hopelessly decided to take the decision back of 10 per cent raise keeping in mind the situation of middle class people, announced the federation. We have felt we are already in loss as the fuel prices are going up day by day, the federation secretary Arshad Khan Niazi said while talking to TheNation. The government had totally neglected the transport sector and the urban transport system had already collapsed due to the cold behaviour of the concerned authorities. The government had promised to give subsidy to urban transporters but since 2006, we had not received a single penny from the government. Ultimately, there were no buses at intra-city routes in Lahore, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad and Multan, he said.
