This 12% increase is due to the wage increase of 19% offered to bus drivers and conductors by the government. An increase accepted by transport operators.Announced on Thursday August 1, the 12% increase in the price of the bus ticket was postponed because transport operators had not yet signed the agreement on a wage increase of 19%. This is done since Tuesday, August 6.
Suttyhudeo Tengur, president of the Association for the Protection of the Environment and Consumers [APEC] contests this 12% increase. In a statement to Radio Plus, he said that the owners of individual buses have not called for an increase in the price of a bus ticket.
The union says the situation at the National Transmisport Corporation (NTC) is an "exceptional cases" where there is "incompetence". Suttyhudeo Tengur believes that the NTC will be in the pit as long as there will not be a "depoliticization" to the company.
