Transport fares to rise by 15% from Thursday

A release from the Road Transport Operators said the increment is in line with the administrative instrument on public transport fares.

Jointly signed by representatives of the Ghana Private Roads Transport Union (GPRTU) and Ghana Roads Transport Coordinating Council (GRTCC), the release asked transport to comply with the new fares, and “post the fare list at their loading terminals so as to avoid any confrontation with the travelling public.”

The release further asked Ghanaians to cooperate with the implementation of the new fares.

The fares cover intra-city, inter city and taxi operations.

The upward review of fares is the first in 2017. This review comes at a time when the government has reduced the Special petroleum tax rate from 17.5 percent to 15 percent.
