Tonga bus drivers have ended a two-day strike after failing to get the government to lower diesel prices.
The President of the Friendly Island Bus Association, Samipeni Finau, wanted to have the same price being charged to fishing vessels but he says the government told him it could not afford that.
The Association has now decided to propose increasing the bus fares which have been the same for six years.
Mr Finau says if the government refuses the new proposal, they will go on strike again.
His words are translated.
"But we are happy that they are concerned with the requests of our sector. The other thing is that the people asked for the buses to resume because of the Inter-college sports competition that is currently running - there are people who do not have cars to get there. And also we realise this weekend is Easter weekend. But we all are happy and at peace with the plans at this stage which is why we have decided to resume our services today."
