ZUPCO Slashes Inner-city Fares
The Zimbabwe Passenger Company (ZUPCO) at the weekend reduced inner-city fares in all trading currencies.
In Bulawayo, ZUPCO reduced fares from ZWL$300 to ZWL$250 and from R7 to R5.
Passengers Association of Zimbabwe (PAZ) president Tafadzwa Goliati commended ZUPCO for the move saying it will provide respite to commuters. He said:
This is a good move which has been taken by the Government as it will help to reduce the burden being worsened by economic hardship.
Goliati, however, urged ZUPCO to increase efficiency and deploy commuter omnibuses in areas where there is a shortage.

He added that having reliable ZUPCO buses will also ensure the safety of members of the public as they won’t be forced to resort to Mushikashika (pirate taxis) where they will be at risk of being robbed. | Chronicle
