Jeepney Fare Hike Effective Today

The government has approved a P1.00 increase in the minimum jeepney fare, raising it to P8 in Metro Manila effective Feb. 2.  A P1.00 provisional increase for provincial fares was also approved.

Effective today, for Luzon, P8.00 is the new fare for jeepney for the first 4 kilometers from P7.00.  For Visayas and Mindanao, P7.50 is the new minimum fare.  Discount of 20% for students and senior citizens still applies.

The jeepney fare increase is the latest in a series of transportation-related price increases that have taken effect or have been approved since the start of the year.
