Minimum bus fare
On Saturday, the state Cabinet decided to reduce the minimum bas fare to Rs 3 from Rs 5 for three km.
The government was forced to reduce the minimum fare due to protests for a 30 per cent hike in HRTC fares from October 1. The increase also included rising of the minimum bus ticket to Rs 5 from Rs 2.
