The GPRTU announced the rise in transportation costs earlier this week as a result of rising gasoline prices.
The union claims that the decision was required by the ongoing rise in petroleum product prices at different fuel pumps.
The price of diesel and gasoline at major fuel stations is currently over GH18 and GH15, respectively; according to transport operators, this is reducing their profit.
Nobody increases lorry fares except for the big GPRTU, which has shrunk the Concerned Drivers.
Meanwhile, the VIP JEOUN transport services increased its prices by 20% on Monday, October 24.
Accra-Kumasi fare, which was formerly GH85, is now GH100, while Accra-Sunyani fare is now GH130.
Additionally, passengers taking a VIP bus from Accra to Tamale are now required to pay GH240.
