Bus Fares Increase

The transport operators is making use of the high inflation rate to apply for fare increase. They have not explore way to reduce costs but instead choose to increase fares each year.
Let me give you an example where a bus operator choose to invest in a new fleet of single deck buses. These buses have narrow standing area at the rear and is on a elevated floor. Most communters do not like to stand on the raise floor. The front area got more standing places but less seats. Is this a wise investment?
Bus operators are having good profits every year and with every fare increase it boast their income. The transport authority must help to judge cost efficient fares for the public. Furthermore, bus operators have a social responsibilty to ensure everyone can afford bus fares.
