Transport Fares Won’t Be Increased – GPRTU Assures



The Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU), has assured it’ll not be increasing transport fares despite hikes in fuel prices.

This comes after they earlier served a notice to increase transport fares today, Tuesday, November 9, 2021, if the government failed to resolve the rising fuel prices in the country.

However, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) for the GPRTU, Alhaji Ibrahim Abass Moro said Ghanaians are already overburdened hence they won’t worsen their plight by increasing the fares.

Abass Moro said “we  [Cargo truck drivers, articulated truck driver, long distances busses] had a marathon meeting yesterday and we came out with something successful.

“We are not going to increase transport fares. We all know the challenges in the country but there are taxes and levies that must be taken out of the petroleum products but we are not going to announce an increase in transport fare”.
