Air-con buses drop minimum fare to P7.50

According to this Philippine Daily Inquirer report minimum bus fares for air-conditioned buses will drop to PHP 7.50 (NZD 0.20 or USD 0.13) from PHP 9.00

This is a surprise as almost all goods and services in the Philippines are going up. Almost every week the prices of gasoline, diesel and LPG are going up.

The report says that it was a response of the bus industry to match the fares of the MRT (light rail) and air-con taxis.
