Transport fares from Mbrarara to Kampala are normalising as Global Coaches buses come back on the road after temporarily suspending business yesterday.
Global Coaches buses operations were suspended after the Transport Licensing Board ordered the company’s drivers to report to the agency and have their driving permits verified.
Seizing the moment, other bus companies plying the Mbarara-Kampala route had increased fares from Shs20,000 to Shs30,000. They reasoned that the passengers have always snubbed them for Global but now have no alternative.
On Tuesday night, a bus belonging to Global Coaches was involved in an accident on the Kampala-Masaka highway where fatalities were reported. This comes after a spate of accidents in which buses belonging to the company have been involved.
