The IBL tariff increase usually takes place during July each year.
The average annual price increase at IBL is normally 6%.
IBL implemented NO increase from July 2020 to Jan 2021.
Passengers saved 3% of the usual 6% increase for 6 months between July 2020 and Jan 2021 because of the “IBL No increase”.

Where else to cut:
IBL already had to cut bus numbers compared to previous years (prior-Covid).
Two retrenchment processes took place between 2020 and 2021.
IBL continues to undergo restructuring and reducing positions to decrease costs.
Operating costs are increased by several IBL road maintenance projects in the Thaba Nchu Trusts, Botshabelo and Mangaung areas.
IBL also suffers from spares costs from vehicles damaged by unmaintained roads in our operational areas.

Impact of rising diesel cost:
Diesel prices increased by 30% during the first 5 months of 2022.
The June estimated fuel increase will result in a 43% increase in fuel for the first 6 months of 2022.
Diesel makes up 25% of our expenses. That 25% is now going to increase by 43%.
To offset the 43% increase in fuel, IBL will need to implement a 10.75% tariff increase.
The Department of Police, Roads and Transport approved a 4.5% increase.
The 4.5% increase therefore does not even make up for 50% of the expense increase.
