Our readers may recall our post on June 11, 2018 titled Varying increment of trotro fares in which story we mentioned that there appears to be a variation in the trotro charges in the city, our sampling shows the rate of increase is greater than the publicly announced 10%.
- Nkrumah Circle to Accra was GHS 140, is now GHS 160
- Nkrumah Circle to Palm Wine at Labadi was GHS 180, is now GHS 2
- Accra to Kaneshie was GHS 140, is now GHS 160.
These trotro fares are charged at all operator terminals; suggesting that the GPRTU, Coop and GRTCC have agreed to charge above the publicized 10%.
