Transport fares: Arrest recalcitrant drivers – Transport Ministry to police

Source The Ghana Report

The Ministry of Transport has instructed the Ghana Police Service to apprehend any commercial driver who charges fares higher than the existing ones.

In a statement dated April 14, 2024, the ministry said negotiations with the transport operators are still underway to arrive at new transport fares following an increase in fuel prices and other related operational costs.

This comes after the Ghana Private Roads and Transport Union (GPRTU) and the Ghana Road Transport Coordinating Council (GRTCC) advised commuters not to pay new transport fares as proposed by the Transport Operators Union and the Concerned Drivers Association of Ghana.

The GPRTU and GRTCC said any fare increment outside the parameters set by the Administrative Instrument governing the review of public fares in the country is illegal.

“The Ministry refers to the press release dated April 11, 2024, jointly signed by the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) and the Ghana Road Transport Coordinating Council (GRTCC) in respect of an attempt by some drivers to arbitrarily increase public transport fares regardless of the directive issued by the Transport Operators concerning the Administrative Instrument.”

“The Ministry is urging the Ghana Police Service and other security agencies to be on the lookout for any driver who goes contrary to the directive issued by the GPRTU and the GRTCC,” the statement said.
