The auto rickshaw union met at the Bairia bus stand in Muzaffarpur on Sunday. Considering the rising prices of diesel and vehicle parts, the union has decided to increase auto fares by 30 percent from March 1.
Information about increasing the fare of the auto by the union has been given to the district administration and transport department. On 25 February, the DTO, RTO, and district administration will be given a list of increased fares.
Seeing the rising prices of diesel, not only autos but bus owners are also in the process of increasing the fare. In the context of increasing the bus fare, there will be a meeting of the bus owners of North Bihar on February 28 at the Bairia bus stand in the district. It is being said that the fare of buses can also be increased by 30 percent.
Apart from the bus, the Truck Owners Association is also meeting to increase the freight of trucks by meeting before February 28, although the date of the meeting has not been set yet.
