Parinya Ruckwatin, managing director of Chao Phraya Express, said on Sunday that the Transport Ministry's boat committee on Feb 12 decided to study the fares and the operating costs of running the boat services for 90 days.
"The time is over. If the plan is not approved the company will suffer 16 million baht in losses each year.
"I hope that the Marine Department will invite the boat committee for a meeting in June and announce that the new fares will be effective in mid July," Cmdr Parinya said.
