A bit of good news comes to Ghanaians as effective Wednesday, May 17, 2023, commuters utilizing public transportation will experience a noteworthy decrease in fares, as prices are set to be reduced by 10 percent.
This reduction comes as a result of consistent marginal declines in fuel costs, prompting road transport operators to announce the fare adjustment.
The 10 percent reduction will apply to various forms of public transport, including shared taxis, intra-city (trotro), intercity (long distance), and haulage services.
According to a statement released by the road transport operators on Monday night, this fare reduction aligns with the established administrative arrangement concerning public transport fares.
It aims to accommodate the decrease in petroleum prices observed during this period.
The operators further extend a request to all transportation service providers, commuters, and the general public to actively cooperate in ensuring the successful implementation of the newly adjusted fares.
The statement concludes by emphasizing the importance of compliance with the new fares and urges transport operators to prominently display the updated prices at their loading terminals.
This reduction in public transport fares serves as a positive development for commuters, offering them a financial respite while navigating their daily journeys.
By aligning fares with the downward trend in fuel prices, the transport industry aims to promote accessibility and affordability for all passengers.
