(Walang kamatayang) Fare Price Hike


Early this April, I took part in this survey on bus price increase of the Dong Khoi-PMH shuttle.

And today, we receive this announcement of price increase yet again!  It was just last March that the fare was increased from 10,000 VND to 12,000 VND.  Now after everybody gets back from the Liberation and Labor weekend on May 4, the new fare is 15,000 VND!

Yeah, yeah, they will add another bus during peak hours in Route H Area from Monday to Friday BUT at 10 AM from PMH / 10:30 AM from Dong Khoi and 6:30 PM from PMH / 7 PM from Dong Khoi.  Really?  THESE are THE peak hours?  Can I just roll my eyes here?

FYI.  The peak hours at least from Dong Khoi ARE 5:30 PM, 6:30 PM, and 7 PM.  And really, who rides the shuttle at 10 AM from PMH? Or at 10:30 AM from Dong Khoi? <insert roll eyes here again>

Sorry, I just don’t get it.  Am I missing something here?  I wonder how it is for the Route S.  And since this is a private shuttle company we’re talking about, we cannot really do anything at all.
