The Ghana Road Transport Coordinating Council (GRTCC) has assured the general public that transport fares will be reduced “very soon” following President Nana Akufo-Addo’s 14th COVID-19 address which he asked commercial buses to have full capacity passengers.
The President said: “In consultation with the Ministries of Transport and Aviation, and the leadership of transport operators, the government has taken the decision to lift the restrictions in the transport sector, and allow for full capacity in our domestic airplanes, taxis, rotors, and buses”.
The announcement has generated some heated arguments between drivers and commuters over the reduction of fares.
But the Council’s General Secretary, Emmanuel Ohene Yeboah in an interview with Neat FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’ has assured an immediate reduction on transportation fares before the end of the week.
He pleaded with commuters to “calm down” and that they are going to meet their drivers and hopefully, the fares will be reduced.
