The Cagayan de Oro City Council has just approved last Monday, May 7, the petition for a P1 increase in motorela fare. Thus, the new regular fare for motorela will now be P7, P5.50 for high school and college students, senior citizens, and persons with disabilities (PWDs), and P4 for elementary pupils.
The said ordinance now awaits the signature of City Mayor Oscar Moreno. Penalty for overcharging is still P500. The fare hike petition was submitted by two motorela groups, the Alyansa-mP3 (Makatarunganong Usbaw, Pletehan alang sa Pamilya ug mga Pasahero) and the Federation of Motorela Operators and Drivers in Cagayan de Oro (FEMODCO).
