Users of public transport should brace themselves for a possible 20 percent increment of transport fares as the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) starts negotiations with the government. This comes at the back of recent hikes in fuel prices.

Although a 15 percent increase in transport fares was introduced barely a month ago, the union says the 20 percent increment has become necessary following the enormous rise in the prices of fuel at the fuel stations.

Speaking on Accra-based Citi FM, the General Secretary of GPRTU, Godfred Abulbire said, “There will be fare increment at all cost to cushion our members. It will come. If we want to do adequate adjustment, then we are looking at two issues. Currently, we would be asking for about 20 percent this time around. It’s actually realistic. We are going to speak from the experience we had from the 15 percent; whether it did us good or bad.”

Godfred Abulbire also hinted that the Union will be engaging government to also consider a reduction in petroleum taxes or possible introduction of fuel subsidies.

“The other issue we are going to speak about is that the government should waive off some of the taxes. We want to see if the government will listen this time around. If not, then definitely, the fare increment will come.  Another area we will discuss with the Transport Ministry is whether subsidies can be introduced.”
