Hundreds of people intending to travel for holidays have been left stranded at long distance pick up points, while buses have illegally hiked fares in a bid to cash in on desperate travellers ahead of the Heroes holidays.

Some of the travellers who spoke to ZBC News said they have spent the whole day hopping from one point to the other waiting for transport to ferry them to their destinations, but with no luck.

Others said the unilateral fare’ increases that they allege have been effected three times in one day could short change their desire to make their travel a reality.
