Commuting has become costlier for Mumbaiites in the last one year with all modes of public transport having seen a fare hike of 15 to 35%.
Even those using private vehicles are paying Rs 4 more for a litre of petrol, and Rs 7 more for a litre of diesel.

Experts warn that the steep price hikes, without much improvement in services, could discourage people from using public transport. “Unfortunately, there aren't too many alternatives available,” said transport expert Jagdeep Desai.
