    The bus fare has increased up.

    Hello, teachers. I have a question.

    "The bus fare has increased up."

    Do you think the sentence above is grammatical? I guess the word "up" has some problem.

    Thank you in advance!

    Don't use up. The verb is simply to increase (not to increase up).
