Transport fares to increase by 30% on Friday, May 13

The Ghana Private Street Transport Association has reported that transport charges would go up by a 30% edge beginning Friday, May 13, 2022.

The GPRTU has clarified that their purpose for increment passages is because of an ascent in fuel costs over the most recent couple of months.


"We have been compelled to settle on a choice. We were considering being thoughtful. We never needed to take this choice, however government has not helped out us. Fuel costs continue to shoot up, we kept in touch with the Vehicle Pastor about our arrangements to increment transport tolls, however we got no criticism. We are hence going to take a choice that will help us also",, said the Advertising Official of the Association, Abass Imoro, in a Citi News interview.


As per him, GPRTU had prior recommended that administration scraps a few assessments on oil based commodities to pad drivers and workers, however their solicitation failed to receive any notice as government neglected to regard their supplication.


Mr. Imoro further proclaimed that they would report the new costs by next Friday.

The Association expanded transport admissions by 15% in February 2022, when fuel costs climbed to GH¢6.4 per liter.


Nonetheless, at present, fuel is around GH¢10 subsequent to crossing the GH¢8 per liter imprint in the main seven day stretch of Walk 2022.


The Association contended that the move has become vital because of the expansion in the costs of oil based commodities.
