Fare rise de­layed

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

A pub­lic trans­port fare in­crease due to take ef­fect on Septem­ber 1 has been de­layed be­cause of ne­go­ti­a­tions with trans­port providers, Metlink says. Fares will now in­crease later this year. The cost of train and bus travel on monthly passes, 10-trip tick­ets and on Snap­per cards is due to in­crease by 5 per cent to help meet ris­ing costs of pub­lic trans­port, Metlink says. Prices will also in­crease on John­sonville trains and on cash fares from Waikanae to Otaki beach. Com­muters who bought a monthly rail pass for Septem­ber at the higher price can get a re­fund.
