Jeepney and bus fares will be higher by two pesos 15 days from now. That means even a two-minute jeepney ride will cost P7.50. Sad. It’s even sadder that the LTFRB announcement on the fare hike came before the wage board’s decision on the worker’s petition for a wage increase.
I was telling my officemates I could save P8.50 by just walking to the office. My boss said I may avoid paying the new minimum fare, but I could walk away from heatstroke!
