Effective midnight on Wednesday, January 15, 2003, the tariff for ferry service between Lembar (Lombok) and Padang Bai (Bali) increased 10%.
State transportation authorities were quick to point out that the latest increase was not the result of recent hikes in fuel prices but was, in fact, the last remaining part of a planned 50% increase commenced in December 2002.
With the latest change of tariff, an economy passenger ticket now costs Rp. 15,000 (approximately US$ 1.69), increased from Rp. 13,500.
The tariff for the transportation of vehicles has increased a similar 10%.
