Maputo Municipal Council is denying rumours that ‘Chapa’ fares are going up in Maputo today, and is calling on residents to report unofficial increases.
In a statement sent to O País, the municipality writes: “The Municipality of Maputo wishes to announce that information circulating on social networks on the entry into force of the new tariff on September 1, 2017, are false, and the current tariffs will remain in force until the decision of the Municipal Assembly.”
The Municipal Council says that it has submitted a proposal for revision of the urban transport tariff to the Municipal Assembly, and is currently awaiting their decision.
Under the proposal, urban public passenger transport fares in the Greater Maputo metropolitan region would rise from the current 7 and 9 meticais to 12 and 15 meticais for distances under and over 10 kilometres respectively.
Maputo Council is urging the public not to pander to opportunism on the part of operators and report unofficial increases to the authorities.Source: O País
