General News
The association made the proposal in a petition to the Parliamentary Select Committee on Roads and Transportation, Ministry of Transport and GPRTU in the wake of the fall in fuel prices

The Association of Passengers, Ghana (APG) has proposed a 15 percent reduction in transport fares.

The association made the proposal in a petition to the Parliamentary Select Committee on Roads and Transportation, Ministry of Transport and GPRTU in the wake of the fall in fuel prices.

The association in its petition noted: “As passengers anytime, the operational costs of commercial transport operators increase, we bear the cost; however, the reverse is not true.”

It further noted its belief that, “there must be fairness in the country to bridge the gap between the rich and poor...”

It has, therefore, proposed “the application of Automatic Adjustment Formula in determining transport fares” and for the association to have a “representation at meetings of stakeholders of the transport industry where fares are determined.”
