Kombi fares hiked due to heavy rains


Kombi fares hiked due to heavy rains. Harare CBD fares were faring between $8 to $10 while Ruwa, Tafara-Mabvuku, Chitungwiza routes increased fees from $10 to $15, while those aboard an Iveco bus were slapped with $l0 from $7 for seated passengers only while $4 to $7 to standing passengers.

Commuters were last night left stranded as kombi operators hiked fares in an unexpected move. Other routes such as Glenview, Kuwadzana and Hatcliff also increased to $8 up from $5. According to a kombi operator who spoke to ZW news the increase was caused by heavy rains that were pouring.

“We want to maximise on these rains so that we cash on time. Also, our trips would be few due to rains as traffic of people travelling will be low,” Abel Simbangwe who plies city-Hatcliff said. Heavy rains poured Harare around 7 pm and 8:30, but after the rains fares remained increased.

A commuter Ms Fungisai Mutema said the government should avail more Zupco buses to rescue hard-pressed citizens. “I get an average of $500 per month, so if l pay $20 to and from home daily it means all my salary can’t even cover up for my transport welfare,” she said.
