PUBLIC PARTICIPATION: LIBHONGOLETHU FARE POLICY

The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality hereby gives notice that it has, in accordance with Chapter 4(16) of the Municipal Systems Act 2000 (Act 32 of 2000), commenced with amendments to the Libhongolethu Fare Policy. These amendments include an increase in the fares in respect of the current feeder routes of the Phase 1A (Cleary Park – PE CBD) Libhongolethu Bus Service. As required by the provisions of the said legislation, the general public and all interested and affected parties are invited to participate in the decisions relating to the provision of municipal services as well as the levying thereof. The provision of the bus services by Libhongolethu forms part of municipal services, as outlined in terms of Section 73 of the MSA. 

The tariff policy regarding municipal services is outlined in Section 74, which states in Section 74(1) that "A municipal council must adopt and implement a tariff policy on the levying of fees for municipal services provided by the municipality itself or by way of service delivery agreements, and which complies with the provisions of this Act and with any other applicable legislation”. The Libhongolethu Fare Policy outlines the business rules as it applies to the fares. The fare policy typically talks to increases, concessions or discounts, effects of changes in underlying operational costs and related matters.

The draft amendment will be available for inspection and comment by the general public, interested and affected parties at Ward Councillors’ offices and municipal libraries along the Cleary Park – CBD route and the Offices of the IPTS: between 08h30 and 16h00, situated at Starport Building, Govan Mbeki Avenue.
