GPRTU is informing every passenger that the old fare is currently not functioning again, so therefore every passenger should note this vital information to avoid misunderstanding between drivers and passengers.
GPRTU decided to increase the lorry fare by 20percent but the government intervened and negotiated with them and it has been agreed to deduct 5percent from the 20 percent to 15percent.This is happening because of the high cost of living in Ghana, and this has cause the increase of lorry fare.
