Plea for cheap new year travel

Cambodian Federation of Unions President Rong Chhun called on Thursday for transport operators to keep fares low during Khmer new Year. “I hope that all taxi drivers and bus companies will take part in facilitating the journey to celebrate Khmer New Year festival for all workers ... by not increasing the transportation price,” he said. One Phnom Pehn transport operator said, however, that companies would likely look to exploit the coming demand for their services. “It has almost become a habit already that passenger transportation companies take advantage by increasing the price of their services during important national holidays in Cambodia,” the represenative said.
