ISLAMABAD: The commuters of twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi have called for bringing down fares of transport, following decrease in fuel prices.
The residents have complained that whenever there is rise in fuel prices, transporters increase fare on their own without issuance of formal notification.
Now, when the government has reduced oil prices to mitigate problems of the common man, they are reluctant to cut transportation charges.
This situation is causing problems for commuters as transporters are not ready to accept any fare decrease.
Muhammad Khan, a commuter at Zero Point stop said that it seems that transport authority are not taking steps against the transporters on overcharging.
The commuters urged the authorities concerned to provide them a sigh of relief, as the transporters are still charging higher fares despite reduction in oil prices.
