KMB should explain fare rise
FROM April 5, the fare on KMB's No 273 from Wah Ming Estate to Fanling KCR Station was raised from $1.80 to $2.20.
This represents an increase of 22 per cent and is twice the rate of inflation.
This particular bus journey only takes about five minutes and I do not understand what reason can be given for so substantial an increase.
I hope a KMB spokesman can provide me with an adequate explanation.
I'm sure other Wah Ming Estate residents would also like to know why the fare rise is so high.
