Last week, the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) was preparing to come out with new rates.
This was a result of what they said is the increasing fuel prices amid its attendant hardship suffered in the current economic downturn.
But even before the union could announce the new fares, a popular long-distance transport service VIP Jeoun says it is unable to shoulder the operational cost accompanying the current developments.
On its Facebook page, the service provider has curated a list of updated prices for travellers across the country.
The upward adjustment affects both the Standard Tour and Executive coaches, per the statement issued on October 23, 2022.
In the communique, the management said though it understands the hardship, “we can all agree to the fact that fares are fundamental to the operation of public transport.”
