The transport fare review committee of the Ghana Road Transport Coordinating Council (GRTCC) has announced a 15% increase in transport fares, effective Thursday, April 6, 2017.
YEN can confirm that the road transport operators have been urged to abide by the new fares and not charge different fares.
“… Post the fare list at their loading terminals so as to avoid any confrontation with the travelling public,” the statement from the GRTCC said.
The statement further asked Ghanaians to cooperate with the implementation of the new fares.
The statement also revealed that the new fares cover the following types of transport operations - Intracity (Trotro), Intercity (Long Distance), and Taxi Cabs.
In Ghana, transport fares are largely reviewed when there is an increase in the cost of petroleum products and cost of spare parts.
