Today, Thursday 6th April, will see transport fares increased by 15 percent across the country.
The decision to increase these fares follow an emergency meeting by government and the transport unions – a development which sees transport fares increased for the first time in 2017.
The development has sparked rage among various concerned passengers as they claim the increment is beyond imaginable but the Ghana transport coordinating council assures that the right fares will be made available at every station.
“We will actually do a transport sensitization where we will paste the transport fares at the various terminals and bus stops so that when we start implementing the prices from Thursday there will not be the usual confusion that comes along with new transport fares,” he assured.
What this means is that if you were to pay for a fare of 2.00 cedis, your fare might definitely go up by 2.30 pesewas.
