Jeepney fares are not the only ones seen to rise; fares for fastcraft and RORO vessels may also push through. Following the upward adjustments implemented by some oil companies, Weesam Express—one of the three fastcraft vessels at the Bacolod Real Estate Development Corp. (BREDCO) Port—stated that they may impose a PhP5 to PhP10 fare increase if prices would reach PhP45 per liter .
Fastcrafts currently have tickets ranging from PhP250 to PhP400 depending on the type of accommodation. For the RORO, the average fare per passenger is PhP70 to PhP80. Once the increase is implemented, the new fare rate for fastcrafts may increase to PhP260 to PhP410, while RORO vessels may see a fare jump of PhP80 to PhP110.
