Transport fares to go up by 10%

The Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) says effective September 16, public transport fares will go up by 10 per cent.

Explaining the basis for the increment, the Union said the various components that go into the running of commercial transport services has gone up.

“This is to accommodate predominantly an increase in fuel prices,” Kwame Kuma, the National Chairman of GPRTU said in a statement, Tuesday.

For some time now, the Union has called for an increment in their fares as prices of spare parts have gone up.

The increased fares will cover intra-city (trotro), intercity (long-distance ride) and shared taxis.

Mr Kuma advised all members of the Union to comply with the “new fares and post the fare list at the loading terminals so as to avoid any confrontation with the travelling public.”

The last time fares were increased was in January 2018.
