Commuters woke up to an upward adjustment in transport fares across the country on Friday, 24 hours before the agreed date of October 29 for the increment.
The action is in line with the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU)’s decision to increase the prices in the wake of hardship.
Fuel prices have shot up drastically over the past few months leading to agitation from the drivers who pledged to transfer some of the cost onto consumers.
At some bus terminals in Accra, new lists have been pasted at vantage points to inform travelers about the new charges for buses.
The increment comes at a time when many Ghanaians are already feeling the brunt of the hardship in the country.
To alleviate their pains, many are urging the government to quickly implement measures to make the situation better.
Below is a compilation of lists from some popular lorry stations in the Greater Accra Regional capital.
On Monday, popular long-distance transport service VIP Jeoun says it is unable to shoulder the operational cost accompanying the current developments.
On its Facebook page, the management curated a list of updated prices for travelers across the country.
The upward adjustment affects both the Standard Tour and Executive coaches, per the statement issued on October 23, 2022.
