The Concerned Drivers Association of Ghana and the Transport Operators of Ghana have both announced an increase in transport fares, effective from Saturday, April 13, 2024.

 

The increment is in response to the recent upsurgein prices of petroleum products.

In a joint statement released on Monday, April 8, 2024, both groups specified the following adjustments: a 15% increase for short-distance or intra city transport, a 20% increase for intercity or long-journey transport, a 15% rise for taxi services, and an increase in fare from GHC 10.00 to GHC 15.00 for short distance taxi hire services.

The decision stemmed from the noticeable absence of government intervention in reducing the price of petrol, vehicle spare parts, and lubricants, despite ongoing economic challenges.

“Twenty (20) percent for intercity or long journey transport, 15 percent for taxi transport and an increment from GHC 10.00 to GHC 15.00 fare for short distance taxi hire services.”

“Just as it may have been noted by most Ghanaians the government appears 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 conditions of transport owners and drivers,” they stated.

They, therefore, urged Ghanaians to take note of the increment and cooperate with transport operators.
