Transport Fares To Go Up Effective April 13

Two transport Unions have served notice to increase transport fares, effective Saturday, April 13, 2024, in response to the recent surge in petroleum prices.

The Concerned Drivers Association of Ghana and the Transport Operators of Ghana made this announcement in a statement issued on Monday, April 8, 2024.

According to the two Transport Unions, the following adjustments are to be expected: a 15% increase for short-distance or intracity transport, a 20% increase for intercity or long-journey transport, a 15% hike for taxi services, and an increment from GHC 10.00 to GHC 15.00 fare for short distance taxi hire services.

They cited the current prices of petrol, vehicle spare parts, and lubricants, despite ongoing economic challenges as the reason for the increase.

“Just as it may have been noted by most Ghanaians government appear to be indifferent regarding any reduction in the price of petrol as well as those of vehicle spare parts and lubricants.

“Also, the prevailing economic difficulties and other factors are worsening the living condition of transport owners and drivers.” the statement added.
