Following the decrease in gasoline prices, the Concerned Drivers Association of Ghana announced a 15.3% reduction in current transportation fares.

This information was communicated to the general public in a communiqué issued by the association today, December 16, 2022.

A portion of the press release also stated that if not for the exorbitant prices of spare parts, the reduction could have been greater than the agreed 15.3%.

The drivers also urged the government to reduce duty costs in order to shorten the supply chain for spare parts, which would force them to reduce transportation fares significantly.

We won’t rush to reduce transport fares despite fuel prices reduction – GPRTU

The communique reads;

“Despite the reduction, transportation fares have not been reduced but broader consultation with stakeholders is still ongoing to look into the call for fares reduction.”

“Although the current increase in the prices of spare parts and lubricants is making the reduction in fares almost impossible and the margin of reduction is very bad,” passengers are assured of a “15.3% reduction in fares effective Monday 19 /12/2022.”

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Transport has assured Ghanaians that transportation fares will be reduced on Monday, December 19, 2022.

Hassan Tampuli, the Deputy Transport Minister, revealed this in an interview with Citi News.

According to a statement from the ministry, negotiations with transportation operators resulted in a marginal reduction in fares.

“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,”
