Transport operators to decide on increased transport fares

Transport operators are expected to meet with the Ministry of Transport on Thursday, January 28 over a possible increase in transport fares across the country following the increment in fuel prices as at the beginning of the year.

Head of the Road Transport Operators Association, Mr Amoabeng in an interview with Daily Graphic in Accra has revealed the meeting should end in a marginal increase in transport fares stating the amount to be added on existing fares would best be negotiated between the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) and the Ministry of Transport.

Following the increase in fuel prices through the passage of the Energy Sector Levy in December 23, 2015, the prices on transport fares have not been affected despite the recent new prices of  petrol been Gh¢15.40 pesewas while diesel goes for Gh¢14.50 pesewas.
