Govt Doubles Hire Fees For Kombis Under ZUPCO Franchise

Govt Doubles Hire Fees For Kombis Under ZUPCO Franchise

The Government has doubled the hire fees for commuter omnibuses (kombis) contracted under the Zimbabwe United Passenger Company (ZUPCO) franchise.

This comes after hundreds of transporters withdrew their vehicles from the ZUPCO pool citing meagre fees that were offered by the transport utility and a growing payment backlog.

The Ministry of Finance and Economic Development last week increased hire fees for kombis from $10 000 to $20 300 per day to lure back private players and motivate others to join the franchise.

Negotiations for a review of hire fees for privately-owned buses are ongoing and are expected to be completed this week.

In an interview with State media, Local Government and Public Works Minister July Moyo said:

Last week’s transport challenges were mainly caused by the pulling out of commuter omnibuses under the Zupco franchise.

We have engaged Treasury and they have approved the upward review of the daily hire fees given to the kombis.

So we expect the situation to normalise.

Finally government has been forced to review upwards hire charges for combis and buses. I feel that other new private operators are now going to join the ZUPCO Franchise.

reviewed after how many years , 20000 in 2 weeks time it needs to be reviewed again because the rate inflation is rising is too much . the Zupco management don't negotiate in good faith . it's good as parking your vehicle
