Transport fares to drop by 10% from August 1

Transport fares are set to reduce by 10 percent after operators were allowed to return to normal business.

The reduction will take effect from August 1.

This announcement is after the transport operators held a meeting with the Transport Ministry.

Transport fares increased by 15 percent in July because operators were struggling with the limit on passengers because of the social distancing brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fuel prices had also begun to increase after initial drops during the onset of the pandemic.

But the President Akufo-Addo, on Sunday, July 26, 2020, announced that commercial vehicles could now take their full capacities.

What followed were calls from the public asking transport operators to revert to the old fares.
