Transportation Fees Will Rise by 30% Starting on March 7

Date:

Two organizations; the Transport Operators Union and the Concerned Drivers Association of Ghana have announced that there will be an increase in transportation fares.

In a statement released on Monday, 4th March 2024, the two organizations have said that after a meeting, they have decided to increase transportation fares by 30 percent from March 7 forward.

The two organizations claim the increment in transport fares was triggered by the high prices of fuel in the country.

According to them, the high price of fuel has badly affected them, but efforts to reach out to the government to do something about it proved futile.

“The fare adjustments are essential to ensure the financial viability of the transportation sector and to maintain the quality of service provided to the public. The fare adjustments are essential to ensure the financial viability of the transportation sector and to maintain the quality of service provided to the public. The failure of the government to address this critical issue has left us with no choice but to consider fare increments as a means of coping with the escalating operational costs”, the statement stated.

It went on to say “We are calling on the government and relevant authorities to engage in constructive dialogue with our leaders to address the challenges faced by our sector and to implement fare adjustments that reflect the current economic realities”.
