The Transport Authority is reporting that seven persons were yesterday prosecuted during its operation to find public passenger operators who are charging commuters more than the 25 per cent increase in bus and taxi fares.
The increase took effect on Sunday.
Communications Manager at the Transport Authority Petra-kene Williams says seven operators, based in St Elizabeth, were charged following complaints from commuters.
She says she is yet to receive a report from other areas.
Yesterday the Police Traffic Division said it also received complaints from commuters in Halls Delight, St Andrew.
Reports reaching our newscentre indicate that some bus drivers who ply the Linstead to Spanish Town route are overcharging customers by $25.
The transport authority is again urging commuters who are being overcharged to call its toll-free line at 1-888-991-5687.
