ISLAMABAD  - The commuters of twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi have called for bringing down fares of intra-city and inter-city transport following decrease in fuel prices.The commuters urged the authorities concerned to provide them a sigh of relief, as the transporters are still charging higher fares despite reduction in oil prices. The Regional Transport Authority Punjab had recently increased transport fares from Rs 5 to 10 on the pretext of oil price hike, but as fuel prices have been reduced, people are awaiting its effect on fares too. 

The commuters said that mostly transporters operating in the twin cities use CNG as fuel, but the transport authority had issued the fare-list according to the prices of the diesel and petrol.The commuters appreciated the federal government for their generous decision for providing great relief to the people.
