The authorities have not made any official statement before or after the fuel price rise.
Currently, the minimum fare of normal bus goes up to 150 kyats which has been increased from 40 kyats. The regular price of bus round about 2004 is only 20 kyats for maximum distance. Right now, nobody can check the right fare that has been usually posted on the bus because of spares won't ask the shown amount which has been approved by the head of the department of vehicles.
The prices of other goods are more likely to be increased because of this situation.
Here are the fare list posted on 56 legally but people seemed to be asked over that price illegally.
"It is not a protest rally but a demonstration to show that we are walking because we cannot afford to travel by buses due to the increased fares caused by hike in fuel prices," Ko Ko Gyi said.
"We are doing this to highlight the situation the people are facing. We want to draw the attention...." Ko Ko Gyi said.
