Public transport fares will not rise this year amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Under normal circumstances, fares could have increased by up to 4.4% based on the current fare review exercise formula, the Public Transport Council said in its annual fare revision announcement on Friday.

The increase has been carried over to the exercise next year even though public transport operators face mounting losses.
