ASEM ABA! We Won’t Lower Transportation Fares: GPRTU Tells Passengers

The Ghana Private Roads Transport Union has rejected efforts to reduce transportation expenses (GPRTU).

Despite lower fuel prices, the union claims they are unable to lower transportation costs.

Abass Moro, the GPRTU’s public relations officer, said on Tuesday’s Kasapa 102.5FM/Agoo TV that the recent slight percentage drop in fuel prices does not yet translate into a decrease in transportation costs because the price of auto parts is still rising.

However, he added that if gasoline prices rise once more, the transport union would increase transportation costs.

According to Abass Moro, the GPRTU will only consider lowering transportation costs if a litre of petroleum costs GHC10.00.

According to him;

“If any member of the public is expecting a reduction in transport fares following the recent reduction in fuel prices, that person should forget it for now. The public should rather appeal to the government to reduce fuel prices to GHC10.00 per litre, which will at least be reasonable. When that is done, then there will be some reduction in transport fares

The Association of Passengers in Ghana (APG) has recently urged the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU), the Ghana Road Transport Coordinating Council (GRTCC), and the Ministry of Transport (MoT) to review and immediately lower transportation fees to reflect current market prices for gasoline and diesel.
