The Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU), is asking commuters to disregard the 20 percent increment in fares announced by other private transport unions.
The intended increment according to the unions has become necessary in view of the number of taxes on fuel announced by the government in the 2021 Budget, and subsequently approved by Parliament.
However, the increment, expected to have commenced on Monday, May 17, 2021, is yet to take effect per checks at some transport terminals.
The Executive Member of GPRTU, Chairman Eric Nii Asirifi described the said increment as unfair to commuters and that it could cause a lot of trouble in the country.
This is what is happening currently in the transportation sector.
