Lower transpo fares effective today
Good news to commuters!
Effective today, Dec. 15, the minimum fare for jeepneys is PhP7.50. Fares of ordinary or non-airconditioned buses will now be PhP9 for the first five kilometers. Fares for airconditioned buses, however, remain at PhP11 for the first five kilometers.
For frequent taxi commuters, the compulsory tip of PhP10 will be temporarily suspended.
Keep in mind though that the fare reduction is only provisional and will be effective until February 2009 only.
