GPRTU denies overcharging passengers

The Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) has refuted claims that its members are overcharging passengers.

This follows reports suggesting that commercial drivers charge above the stipulated amount.

According to the report, this has led to several confusions and scuffles between passengers and transport operators at various bus terminals.

But speaking to the issue, the Public Relations Officer of GPRTU, Abass Imorro, said their members can’t overcharge passengers.

“I would be highly surprised for any passenger to claim that some of our drivers are overcharging. It’s been a long time since we came up with any upward adjustment in lorry fares. I would be surprised to hear now that some of our people are overcharging.

“Well, in any case, we have some commercial drivers whom we term as floating drivers; they don’t belong to any entity at all. If this can be attributed to them, I have little to say,” Mr Imorro said in an interview with Citi News, monitored by The Ghana Report.

Public transport operators agreed to lower fares by 10% in May 2023, following a continuous reduction in the prices of petroleum products at the time.

However, this was shrouded in drama as some commercial drivers refused to implement the new changes.

Before the reduction, transport fares had seen several increases in line with the rising fuel cost at the time.
