Decrease on public transport fare in Bagmati province

Kathmandu, May 26: The public transport fare has decreased on short routes in Bagmati Province. The Ministry of Labour, Employment and Transport has decreased the fare, 9 days after Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC) reduced the price of diesel.

According to the public transport latest fare determined by the Ministry, it has been decreased by 5.9 percent in the Kathmandu Valley, and by 4.18 percent in public vehicles and by 5.69 percent in goods-carrier vehicles.

The transport entrepreneurs had determined the fare on their own before this as the public transport fare of vehicles operating on short routes was not increased even as the price of diesel went up. The public transport fare of only vehicles operating on long routes was increased at that time.

The transport fare of public transport vehicles operated in short route within the province was increased last year. As per the increased transport fare, passengers are charged Rs 20 upon entering the public bus in Kathmandu Valley.
