No increase in transport fares – GPRTU

The Ghana Private Roads and Transport Union (GPRTU) says it has not approved an increase in transport fares.

This follows an announcement by two transport unions, the True Drivers Union and Concerned Drivers Union, of a 10 per cent increment in transport fares with effect from today.

The increase, according to the groups, is due to the rising cost of fuel and its impact on the transport business.

But the National Chairman of the GPRTU, Mr Kwame Kumah says the Union has not sanctioned the increment.

He noted, however, that the Union is in talks with the Transport Ministry and other stakeholders on a possible increase and that a decision is yet to be arrived at.
