Ghana: Transport Fares To Go Up By 40% On January 17


Commercial drivers in Ghana have announced a 40% increment in transport fares across the country from Monday, January 17, 2022, according to reports by local media.

The Concerned Drivers Association of Ghana (C-DAG) explained the need for an upward adjustment in fares in a news release dated January 10,2022.

C-DAG cited the price of fuel at the pumps, high prices of vehicles and the increase in prices of spare parts and lubricants as some of the immediate factors that triggered the price change.

‘It must be noted that we commiserate with Ghanaians on the current economic hardship but in order to keep us in business, we are left with no other option but to adjust transport fares a little upward which is a 40% increment’, portions of the drivers association’s statement read.

‘It must be noted that we also experience the economic conditions of the country. It has become extremely difficult for us to manage our homes as prices of basic commodities, including sachet water have also seen an upward increment’.


C-DAG pleaded with the public to accept the new transport fares when it takes effect on Monday, January 17, 2022.


The Association believe Ghanaians appreciate the reality on the ground and will avoid fighting drivers and their conductors when the new fares come into force.
