The Director-General of the Land Transport Regulatory Commission (LTRC), Abdul Rahim Al-Wreikat, emphasized the importance of adhering to the final disbursement date, enabling subsequent payments to proceed smoothly.

This support, mandated by a Cabinet decision, aims to assist operators of passenger transport lines and taxi services under the commission's jurisdiction. All necessary procedures for fuel support disbursement have been finalized, allowing eligible operators to refuel their vehicles at authorized stations with approved subsidy values during the specified timeframe.

Wreikat highlighted that these disbursements are part of the government's strategy to address the additional costs arising from escalating fuel prices. By covering these expenses, the government seeks to prevent fare hikes, thereby easing the financial burden on citizens utilizing public transportation.

The subsidies are disbursed based on the type of fuel used for transportation through approved stations in each governorate.
