GPRTU Announces New Transport Fares Effective Monday



The Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) will on Monday, October 24, 2022, announce new transport fares across the country.

The Head of Communications for the Union, Abass Ibrahim Moro said on NEAT FM the increase has been necessitated by the continuous soaring of prices of petroleum products at the various fuel pumps.

Currently, Diesel and Petrol are selling for over GH¢15 and GH¢13 respectively at major fuel pumps; a situation transport operators say it’s eroding their profit.

A meeting between the GPRTU and Transport Ministry on the fare adjustment ended in a stalemate.

“Normally, if we are able to conclude, we will come out on Monday with a percentage of increment. We will give the passengers a few days to adjust themselves to the new prices.”

He further admonished passengers to bear with the GPRTU in order to keep their business running.

“We’ve been very considerate. This would have been the third or fourth adjustment from May. We are all in this country and have seen frequent increments in fuel prices. But we have sacrificed to contain it. But we can no longer bear the cost.”

“So we urge passengers to bear with us.”
