CAPI questions why Seniors received largest JUTC fare hike

Civil lobby group Citizens’ Action For Principles And Integrity (CAPI), is describing the bus fare increase as untimely and another obstacle in the path of the already burdened consumer in their efforts to cope economically. “We find it alarming that the elderly (senior citizens), the most vulnerable of the group, was singled out for the largest increase of 200% and question the rationale. While there is no right time for an increase in any costs, however, at this time, when consumers are faced with almost fixed incomes and increasingly contracting disposable income caused by devaluation, we regard the increase as economically inopportune and imprudent as it will drive inflation which has implications for the exchange rate and the country’s growth prospects” said co-convenor of CAPI Dennis Meadows. A copy of the press release can be viewed below.
