We’ll resolve transport fares issues – GPRTU assures Passengers

The Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) has advised the people to be calm while the Union works to resolve the problem of transportation fees.

Fares for public transportation were anticipated to decrease by 15.3 percent beginning Monday, December 19, 2022.
According to Road Transport Operators, the cut was intended to encompass taxis, intra-city (Trotro), intercity (long distance), and haulage.

Commercial transportation operators were ordered to comply with the revised rates and post them at their loading terminals.

However, commercial transportation operators are purposefully refusing to comply with the 15.3 percent fare drop mandated by the GPRTU, which began last Monday.

The scenario has caused friction at certain bus stations, as well as among intra-city drivers and their passengers.

In an interview with Starr News, GPRTU Industrial Relations Officer Abbas Ibrahim Moro underlined the union’s pledge to push their drivers to abide to the new prices.

“This is the first time we are practicing reduction on lorry fare. So, at least let’s give these drivers that benefit of the doubt. Some of them said they are not aware. Some of them are also saying they haven’t really calculated the 15.3 percent on their lorry fare. We believe in dialogue more than any other action. We are planning to talk to the drivers before any action will come out,” Mr. Moro stated.
