Gov’t Approves 15% Increment On Transport Fares Instead of 50% Set By The GPRTU

Report gathered by www.bibinionline.com indicates that, the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) has issued for a 50% increase in transport fares.

 

This was, however, rejected by the government and instead approved for a 15% increase.

Changes in transport fares took effect from Saturday, July 11, 2020.

 

According to the Deputy Minister of Transport, Daniel Titus Glover, he said that transport operators have sacrificed a lot since the outbreak of COVID-19.

 

It is important that they are supported so that they don’t go out of business, he stated.

 

He encouraged that measures would be put in place to ensure that all safety protocols are implemented at all transport stations.

 

Mr. Daniel went on to say that stations have been asked to paste the new list at the various vantage points to avoid any uncalled for arguments.
