Taxi fares to increase

Taxi fares (Three wheeler) will be increased by Rs. 2 per kilometer from today owing to the fuel price hike, the Secretary of the Three Wheelers Association Lal Kalinga said.

Accordingly, he said that Three Wheel operators will charge Rs. 32 per kilometer as opposed to Rs. 30 which was the earlier rate.
The price increase comes even as the Ceylon Electricity Board and Water Board announced they were also increasing the cost charged on consumers.

Bus fares had also increased from this week.
