The Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) is educating the public ahead of a projected hike in transportation charges, according to the GPRTU.
Alhaji Abass Imoro, the GPRTU’s Public Relations Officer, told 3news.com that they do not want to surprise the public, which is why they are sensitizing them.
“We’re educating the public about the upcoming increase in transportation charges. “We don’t want people to be caught off guard if it rises,” he explained.
He also stated that if gasoline costs fall, transportation fares will fall as well.
“When fuel prices fall, we’ll gladly lower transportation charges as well.” He went on to say, “We will not hesitate at all.”
Meanwhile, in May 2022, the GPRTU announced an increase in transportation fares.
The decision to raise transportation charges was prompted by the country’s economic difficulties and their harmful influence on their jobs.
The high cost of gasoline, the high import tariff on automobiles, and the rise in the cost of spare parts and vehicle lubricants, according to several transportation groups, are among the causes.
