GPRTU set to increase transport fares again

The Ghana Private Roads Transport Union (GPRTU) has intended to increase transport fares.

The Union has decided to adjust transportation fares upwards following series of increments at the bumps.

Transport fares had gone up last month triggering another rise in the rate of inflation.

Meanwhile, fuel prices will also go up again this Thursday.

In view of this, the GPRTU says Ghanaians should prepare for the looming increment in transport fares.

Speaking to JoyNews’, the Union’s Spokesperson, Abass Imoro, said GPRTU has begun a sensitisation programme to prepare the public ahead of the increase.

“We want to prepare their minds and if nothing is being done, we cannot stablise the price and when it gets to the 10% threshold, we will come out with another upward adjustment.

“If we don’t do this, we won’t have it easy,” he told host Evans Mensah.

This increment will be the third of its kind this year.

Following the hike in fuel prices, the Union, made up of both commercial and private drivers and other stakeholders, has called on government to scrap some taxes on fuel to cushion consumers.
