    The government has raised long-route bus fare by 0.15 taka (15 paisa) per kilometer to Tk 1.35 per km following fuel oil price hike.

    The new price will be effective from Monday.

    The decision came from a meeting between Communications Minister Obaidul Quader and leaders of long-distance bus owners association, held at capital`s Sarak Bhaban on Saturday afternoon.

    Ayubur Rahman, Chairman of Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) and other concerned government officials were present.

    Emerging from the meeting Ayubur Rahman told media that the move was made after proposal by the association leaders to raise fare of buses of long-distance routes, including inter-district, after Thursday`s fuel oil price hike by the Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission (BERC) which upped prices of all fuel oils, including octane, petrol, diesel and furnace oil by a flat rate of 5 taka, the 3rd time in the last 3 and half months and the 4th time this year.

    Ayubur Rahman further said a circular will be issued in this regard on Sunday and the hiked long-distance bus fare will be effective from Monday, the second day of 2012.

    He also said that the fares for buses running in Dhaka Metropolitan City and the port city of Chittagong will be increased and the announcement will come very soon.
