In an interview with The Chronicle yesterday, Bulawayo United Public Transporters’ Association (Bupta) administration director, Mr Albert Ncube said they have reduced kombi fares from 50 cents to 30 cents for students at the National University of Science and Technology (Nust).
He also said that they want to extend the same service to other students. Said Ncube:
This is not something that will happen at Nust only, but we are taking it to Hillside Teachers’ College and United College of Education. I’m going there to talk to them and map the way forward. We will also reduce fares for school children in areas that we operate in. We will pick up groups from terminuses so institutions can approach us and we will organise something. However, this does not apply to individuals. We will not run a loss from this because most of the distances we cover are under six kilometres. This is very sustainable and will not change unless there are drastic changes in fuel prices.
