Inter-city bus ticket prices increase in Bulgaria as of August 1

Prices of inter-city bus tickets in Bulgaria increase as of August 1 2012, rising by one to two leva because of hikes in fuel prices.

The new prices will make it possible for bus drivers to keep their jobs, transport companies said.

Bus prices from Sofia to Bourgas on the Black Sea coast will increase to about 28 leva (14 euro) and to Varna to just more than 34 leva.
