Recently, the fares for passenger trains, namely Fareed Express and Shah Latif Express, have increased by 9 percent. This increase has been implemented immediately, and ticket counters have already updated their systems to reflect the new fares. For instance, the train fare for the Karachi to Lahore route has been raised to Rs3,450.

In addition, intercity transporters have also raised their fares by up to Rs200 as a result of the recent hike in petrol prices. The fares for various bus services have been adjusted accordingly. The Karachi to Larkana bus fare has been increased by Rs100 to Rs1,500, while the fare for the Karachi to Shikarpur route has risen by Rs200 to Rs1,600. Similarly, the fare for the Karachi to Mehar route has gone up by Rs100 to Rs1,400.

Other route fare revisions include an increase of Rs100 for the Karachi to Sehwan route, now priced at Rs1,200. The fare for the Karachi to Naseerabad route has also increased by Rs100 to Rs1,400, and the fare for the Karachi to Hyderabad route has increased by Rs100 to Rs600.

These fare adjustments come after the recent decision by the caretaker government to increase the price of petrol by Rs17.50 per litre. This brings the price to a record high of Rs290.45 per litre. Furthermore, the price of high-speed diesel has also been raised by Rs20 per litre, making it available at Rs293.40 per litre.
