Ghanaians will from today, October 29, 2022, pay extra charges for vehicular services, as the 19% expansion in transport fares declared by the Ghana Private Road Transport Association (GPRTU), takes an implemented effect.
The GPRTU declared that there would be an expansion in the fares during the earier days of the week.
The decision, as per the union, has been made imperative by the ceaseless surge of oil prices and its relative products, at diverse fuel purchasing stations.
As of now, diesel and petroleum are selling for over GH¢18 and GH¢15 simultaneously at significant fuel purchasing stations, a circumstance transport administrators say is obstructing their revenue making potential on a per rate basis.
VIP JEOUN, a wholesome transport service company, has expanded its charges by 20% on Monday, October 24, 2022.
The transport charging rates from Accra to Kumasi, which previously used to be GH¢85 is presently GH¢100, whiles the newly implemented transport fare charges from Accra to Sunyani will currently cost GH¢130 cedis.
Additionally, individuals travelling from Accra to Tamale are henceforth, going to be charged GH¢240 for VIP transports.
