The updated fare is based on the distance traveled by a commuter and will replace the current flat-rate system that charges Rs. 40.

The Punjab Mass Transit Authority (PMTA) has proposed that the government charge commuters Rs. 20 for 0-5 km, Rs. 30 for 5-10 km, Rs. 40 for 10-15 km, Rs. 50 for 15-20 km, and Rs. 70 for 25 km and above.
