HRTC to charge 20 percent more in its night services

The state government has hiked the fare in Himachal Road Transport Corporation (HRTC) night buses with immediate effect. Now passengers travelling between 8 pm and 6 am will have to shell out Rs 20 extra for the journey.

The night charges, which were withdrawn by the state government about a decade ago, have again been levied making travelling costlier. Govt this decision may put the HRTC buses at a disadvantage in comparison to other roadways buses as none of them is charging night charges.

However, passengers undertaking journey for less than 50 km during night time will not be charged this extra money.
