Road transport operators have released the new public transport fares ahead Saturday’s 10% downward review.
The decision to reduce transport fares was taken after passengers complained about paying new fares when the government had eased their restriction – allowing them to operate at full seating capacity.
The new transport fares were indicated in a joint communique signed by the National chairman of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU), Kwame Kuma and Emmanuel Ohene Yeboah, who is the General Secretary of the Ghana Road Transport Coordinating Council.
Commercial transport operators have been asked to “comply with the revised fares and post same at their loading terminals so as to avoid any confrontation with the travelling public”
“For the avoidance of doubt, all commercial vehicle drivers and passengers are to note that the Approved Fares is five percent (5%) over the earlier approved fares which took effect from 16th September, 2019,” the statement stressed
