The Transport Operators Union and the Concerned Drivers Association of Ghana have announced that starting from Thursday, March 7, there will be a 30% increase in transport fares. They released a press statement on March 4, Monday, stating that the fare increase is due to the inadequate response from the government regarding their concerns.

They highlighted the continuous surge in fuel prices, which has significantly impacted their livelihoods and made it challenging to sustain their operations. Describing the fare adjustment as essential for business sustainability, they called on the government to engage with their leaders to facilitate a smooth implementation of the fare adjustments.

“The fare adjustments are essential to ensure the financial viability of the transportation sector and to maintain the quality of service provided to the public. “The failure of the government to address this critical issue has left us with no choice but to consider fare increments as a means of coping with the escalating operational costs.”

“We are calling on the government and relevant authorities to engage in constructive dialogue with our leaders to address the challenges faced by our sector and to implement fare adjustments that reflect the current economic realities,” they said in a statement.
