Transportation fare is about to go up again – Trotro Drivers

Just three weeks after a 15 percent fare increase, road freight companies on Monday (March 21) warned of further hikes if fuel prices were not cut.

The latest transport fares took effect on Saturday (Feb.26) and with fuel prices rising in Ghana, transport companies said they had no choice but to revise fares again on Monday.


Ibrahim Moro, Industrial Relations Commissioner for Private Road Transport (GPRTU) of Ghana, who issued the warning, stated that “if fuel prices are not lowered by Monday, we will present new transport fares within a week”.

“We are in a commercial business – nobody buys anything for GH-3 and sells it for GH-2, so people go to China for business. We gave up this week and you [Ghanaians] will definitely hear from us next week, ” Alhaji Moro told 3FM Sunrise host Alfred Okanci on Thursday.

He added: “It comes with another component. We need to sit down and look at the other components before we get to the tariffs.”

“Before we didn’t fully hit the 25 per cent mark on gas prices, but now we have stopped. We are moving towards the 10 per cent threshold at fuel prices.”

Alhaji Moro said they gave themselves the weekend to see if the government listened to us, otherwise, we would have to think about an upward adjustment.”We want the accumulated price to be reduced and all transport companies to join in with the next hike.”
