MANILA, Philippines — A multi-sectoral activist group is outraged after the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board approved petitions to increase fares collected by two major railway systems in Metro Manila — this without mention of any consultation with commuters and the public.


The LTFRB, Wednesday, okayed the additional P2.29 boarding fare and P0.21 per kilometer distance fare in LRT-1 and LRT-2, pegging the new boarding fare to P13.29 and new distance fare to P1.21 per kilometer on both the LRT-1 and LRT-2. 


The new fares will still need approval from the Department of Transportation and other government agencies.
