Concerned Drivers Association of Ghana (C-DAG), Transport Operators in Ghana announce 15% increase in transport fares


The Concerned Drivers Association of Ghana (C-DAG) and Transport Operators of Ghana have jointly declared a rise in transportation fares, effective Saturday, April 13, 2024, in response to the recent surge in petroleum prices.


On Monday, April 8, 2024, the two organizations released a statement in which they made this declaration.


According to the unions, given the recent spike in the cost of fuel, replacement components, and lubricants, the increment is desperately needed.


They outlined the following adjustments: “a 15% increase for short-distance or intracity transport, a 20% increase for intercity or long-journey transport, a 15% hike for taxi services, and an increment from GHC10.00 .


The decision was motivated by the noticeable lack of government intervention in reducing the price of petrol, vehicle spare parts, and lubricants, despite ongoing economic challenges.


Also, the prevailing economic difficulties and other factors are worsening the living conditions of transport owners and drivers.


They pleaded with Ghanaians to cooperate with transport companies and take note of the increment.
