The State-owned transport operator Zimbabwe United Passenger Company (ZUPCO) has slashed bus fares by 50 percent with effect from tomorrow, the 21st of May 2019.
In a statement, Finance and Economic Development Permanent Secretary Mr George Guvamatanga said for a distance of one to 20 kilometers, the fare has been reduced from $1 to 50 cents.
He said the move is part of government operation to restore sanity in urban centres as commuters have been getting stranded on their way to and from work.
A distance of 20 to 30 kilometers, the fare has been reduced from $1.50 to 75 cents, Guvamatanga said.
A distance of 30 to 40 kilometers is now pegged at $1 from $2.
Mr Guvamatanga said the move has been necessitated by the need to cushion the travelling public adding that further distances will follow similar reductions.
