Due to the “significant hikes” in fuel prices recently, the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) have scheduled a meeting in the coming week to discuss a “possible’ increment in transport fares.
This has become necessary to allow drivers make up for their losses due to the continuous increment in fuel prices.
This is as made known by the Deputy General Secretary in Charge of Operations, Richard Yaw Amankwah, with the following statements: “The situation demands it. We are also consumers. Whenever fuel prices go up, it affects our business and even though we are not happy to increase transport fares, it will go against our business if we don’t do so”

About GPRTU New Transport Fares
- Just last month, transport fares were increased by 20% due to continuous increase in fuel prices , which sparked outrage between some passengers and commercial drivers
- The GPRTU implemented the last 20 per cent increment in transport fares without any negotiation with the Government after successive attempts to engage the Ministry of Transport over their proposed rate proved futile.
- Currently, a litre of petrol is trading at an average of GH¢10.10.
- The Deputy General Secretary, Mr Richard Yaw Amankwah, of GPRTU has stated that commercial drivers “have not seen any significant increase” in their income since the last increment in fares due to the continuous rise in fuel prices.
