BELFAST city bus fares will not go up at the beginning of 1967, as recommended by the Corporation's special fares and stages committee, if a transport committee decision is approved by the City Council.
After a stormy 24--h9ur meeting the transport committee rejected the increase. Councillor John Allen proposed instead a complete amalgamation with Ulsterbus, or a joint partnership in an effort to increase the efficiency of the bus services in Belfast and district.
