Golden ArrowEWN reports that Golden Arrow bus fares are set to go up as of 31 December 2018.  They will be hiked by 9.5%, partly due to fuel price increases.  

Spokesperson Bronwen Dyke-Beyers said that, in addition to the sky-rocketing cost of fuel, nationally determined wages for workers increased by 9%.  But, she added that some passengers would be spared, albeit temporarily.  “Passengers can postpone paying the increased fares until 13 January 2019 in the case of 10-ride gold card packages, which are valid for 14 days bought on Sunday, 30 December 2018,” she advised.
