The Ghana Road Transport Coordinating Council (GTRCC) has indicated that the Ministry of Transport is ready for a tripartite meeting comprising the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) to deliberate on a proposal for a tariff increase.

The tripartite is made up of the Ministry of Transport, the Ghana Road Transport Coordinating Council and the Ghana Private Road Transport Union.

The Secretary General of the Council, Emmanuel Ohene-Yeboah specified that the meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 11, 2022.

In this regard, the GTRCC, in a statement dated May 9, asked the general public and commuters to disregard the alleged 20% upward adjustment of transport fares by the GPRTU.

This, the group explained, is because “transport tariffs have always been negotiated for and on behalf of all operators by the Ghana Road Transport Coordinating Council and the Ghana Private Road Transport Union”.

According to the group, “no union or group has the ability to determine the amount of the increase except for the two bodies mentioned above”.

“We want to reiterate that the GRTCC and GPRTU have not divorced permanent protocols for a fare increase, so it is unwarranted for a group of people to rush through the process of announcing a fare increase without reference. to permanent protocols”, part of the indicated version.

The Council also advised drivers to stop charging the 20% fare increase.

The GTRCC noted that “as we continue to discuss the appropriate adjustment, which will be signed by representatives of the GRTCC and GPRTU and communicated to you.”
