The Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) has announced a 13 percent increment in transport fares effective Saturday, June 5, 2021. The new fares will cover intercity ‘trotro’ vehicles, intercity long-distance vehicles and shared taxis.
The decision, according to the union, is to predominantly accommodate the recent increase in fuel prices. It says, however, that the government has “assured that it will continue with efforts to prevent a steep rise in input cost.”
“We further request members, commuters, and the general public to cooperate for the successful implementation of the new fares.”
