The Ghana Road Transport Operators (GRTO) has announced a 10 percent increase in transport fares across the country.

The increment is expected to take effect from Monday 27th of January 2014.

The statement signed by the General Secretary of GTUC, Stephen Okudzeto and General Secretary of GRTCC, Alhaji Aliyu Baba said the Road Transport Operators reviewed their prices based on the various elements that go into running commercial transport.

“The new road transport fares cover the following types of Road Transport Operations : Intra-City (Trotro), Inter-City (Long Distance) and Taxis Cabs.’’

The statement also advised drivers and members, as well as commuters to co-operate for the ‘’success of these changes’’.

The increase in fares comes on the back of recent increment in fuel prices by the National Petroleum Authority (NPA).
