Transport operators have announced a 15% increment in fares with effect from Monday July 14.
The new fares were announced on Saturday, July 12, after consultations between the Transport Ministry and the transport operators represented by the Ghana Road Transport Coordinating Council (GRTCC).
A joint statement to that effect was issued by the General Secretaries of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) and Ghana Road Transport Coordinating Council (GRTCC), Stephen K. Okudzeto and Alhaji Aliu Baba respectively.
The releases noted that the new transport fares will cover intra-city (Trotro), inter-city (Long Distance) as well as Taxi Cabs.
The statement urged transport operators to strictly comply and charge only approved fares as well as publish them at the various transport terminals to avoid any confrontation with passengers.
