Transport operators in the above areas did not initiate any similar fare hike petition.
According to Mar Roxas, the provisional fare increase may influence inflation but not significantly because it will not be heavy to shell out an additional P1 on one’s daily budget for a two-way transportation.
I beg to disagree sir. Common Juan and Maria will have to shell out triple that amount if they have to ride a trike to go to the main road, then transfer to a jeepney then another jeepney going to work. A three pesos (Php 3.00) additional burden everyday multiply by 30 days would translate to Php 90.00. A burdensome amount if you are the common Juan or Maria. And nothing for elite people who don’t commute going to work.
I wish this government officials commute to work everyday so they will feel how it is to commute going to work and back.I also hope they earn the same salary as that of Juan and Maria, and let’s hear them talk after they got this news.
