AMMAN —Al Ghad— The Ministry of Transportation’s Regulatory Commission (LTRC) announced on Wednesday raising public transportation fares by 10 per cent, effective 5th of January, 2017, to include medium and large transportation buses, taxi and public service cars.

The basis for the raise, the LTRC explained in a statement, is the rise in inflation, oil and depreciation costs, highlighting that the last raise was back in 2012, by 10 per cent for fuel run vehicles, and 11 per cent for transportations that run on diesel.
