GPRTU Reacts to Alleged Increase in Transportation Fares
The GPRTU has reacted to the news that the Union may increase transportation fares by 15%. The statement, released by the GPRTU’s press secretary yesterday, reads as follows;
The GPRTU is outraged at this action, and will do all in its power to ensure it doesn’t go through. If this does go through, then our next course of action will be discussed with our members and announced within the next weeks.
A rise in transportation costs will be troublesome
A recent post on social media claims that the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) has reacted to an alleged increase in transportation fares.
If this is true, it would be troublesome for many commuters in Ghana, as transportation costs are already quite high.
The GPRTU has not released an official statement yet, so we don’t know for sure if the fares have actually gone up or not.
Steady dialogue between commuters and authorities needed

Recently, there have been reports of an alleged increase in transportation fares by the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU).
While authorities have not confirmed these reports, it is clear that something needs to be done to ease the burden on commuters.
