Reports from various passengers suggest ZUPCO has doubled its fares as of today. There hasn’t been an official public communication yet as we write this but there is a short WhatsApp message which purposes to instruct ZUPCO crews (staff) to increase these fares. Again we cannot at this moment verify its authenticity although several people we know have said that they were being asked to pay double the usual fare.

fares increase from 2morrow :
Combis -‐ $8,00
Buses– $4,00.
Please team tell your crews and passengers should know

From Zupco

One version of the WhatsApp message

The message seems to be from some supervisor informing ZUPCO crews to hike their fares.
