Good News As Transport Ministry Makes Announcement On Fares Reduction Nationwide -DETAILS.

Commuters across the country should expect a reduction in transport fares on Monday, the Transport Ministry has said.

The announcement comes after a significant reduction in fuel prices.

Diesel is likely to be sold at GH¢15 per litre in the next pricing window on Friday, December 16, 2022, while the price of petrol is expected to drop further.

Deputy Transport Minister, Hassan Tampuli, in an interview with Citi News, said his outfit is negotiating for a margin that will be fair to both passengers and transport operators.

“We understand that the fares will definitely come down. It is the margin of reduction that we are still negotiating. We are waiting for the next pricing window on Friday [December 16, 2022].

“So when the new prices are announced, we will see the clearest picture and we will see the percentage margin for the reduction of fares. We do not have the full picture until the window opens on Friday. Hopefully, by Monday, the general public should see a reduction in transport fares”.

On his part, the General Secretary of the Ghana Private Road and Transport Union (GPRTU), Godfred Abulbire, assured the citizenry that some downward adjustments to transport fares will be announced soon.

“Once the fuel prices have come down, the fares will be reduced. The reduction is obvious. Fare increment is not in the interest of anybody.

“Today, what we have discussed is to arrive at the margin for reduction that the general public and operators will equally be satisfied with. So on, Monday, we will conclude on the actual margin,” Mr Abulbire assured.
