Transport fares fifteen percent (15%) increment is effective today, February 26, 2022, across the country.
According to the Ghana Road Transport Coordinating Council (GRTCC), the increment is in tandem with the administrative arrangement on public transport fares and in consideration of the plight of drivers, commuters, and the general public.
It also mentioned current trends on the international market and their impact on domestic fuel.
Although transport unions wanted a 30 percent upward adjustment, after a meeting with stakeholders on Monday, 21 February 2022, the operators agreed to a 15 percent increment.
The public is groused over the new adjustment and sees it as a ‘double slap’. Knowing that it will culminate into the consequent hike in the prices of goods and services.
