Weeks after a P1 provisional fare hike for jeepneys in NCR and Regions III and IV was approved, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) is now rolling out further increases.

Effective July 1, 2022, the minimum jeepney fare across the country will be P11 for regular jeepneys, meaning a P1 increase to the base fare in Metro Manila and Regions III and IV (P10), and a P2 hike to the base fare in all other regions (P9). The base fare for modern jeepneys, meanwhile, will go up to P13, or a P1 increase.
