Habashneh noted that the committee’s recommendations will be submitted to the Council of Ministers in the next couple of days in order to make the proper decision.

He added that fuel makes 35 percent of the public transportation’s running costs and that the profit margin must be maintained for drivers and owners of the public transport vehicles while providing services to the public.

Habashenh said that public transport fares have remained the same since 2018, however, there is an urgent need to review and examine the impact of the latest increase on fares in general.
