Transport fares expected to go up on Wednesday
Transport fares are expected to go up on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, according to the Alhaji Abass Imoro who is the Industrial Relations Officer for the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTTU).
This new development comes after fuel prices went up by some 4.4% which he said, the increment of transport fare is to ensure transport operators survive.
“After the budget we started planning also the way to go about it and now they have come up with the petrol, we are waiting for the road toll. It is also on the way coming.
“Definitely tomorrow, if God permit our leadership will come up with very reasonable percentage [transport fares] as to how to move forward.
“Most of the time it is very difficult, it is very painful but without that we cannot survive. Look at the surrounding counties around us, is that the way they have been increasing their fuel products? The answer is no.”
