Drivers yet to revert to old fares

Commercial drivers who increased transport fares after recent increment in fuel prices are yet to revert to the old fares.

The Ghana Private Roads Transport Union (GPRTU) ordered the drivers to revert to the old fares pending consultations with other stakeholders.

However, Citi News checks indicate that the drivers are still charging the new unapproved fares.

Meanwhile, commercial drivers in Hohoe in the Volta Region unlike some of their colleagues in Accra and the Eastern Region have not increased transport fares yet.

According to Citi News’ Volta Regional correspondent, Macintosh Gratham transport fares have remained the same.

“Hohoe to Accra through Attim Poku, is 18 Ghana cedis. Those who travel through Sogakope, charge between 21 and 23 cedis depending on the nature of the vehicle.”

According to the first trustee of the GPRTU, Matthew Agbley, they are monitoring the system to check the next line of action.
