Don’t increase transport fares yet – GRTCC to Commercial drivers

The Ghana Road Transport Coordinating Council, GRTCC has asked drivers to stick to the existing transport fares and remain calm while the council, together with the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU), finalizes with government the fares that will be mutually beneficial to all parties.

General Secretary of GRTCC, Emmanuel Ohene Yeboah, told newsmen that the council and GPRTU are doing due diligence in ongoing discussions with the mandated state institutions to ensure the new transport fares reflect all ingredients in the cost build-up in the transport sector.

Mr. Yeboah said a proposal has been made to the Ministry of Finance to extend the tax exemptions that were made in the Income Tax (Amendment) Act, 2021, Act 1066, as announced in the 2021 Budget for some categories of vehicles.

He described the 20 percent increase in transport fares announced by some Drivergroups as an act of lawlessness that must not be entertained.
