Trotro drivers in Accra will begin to wear masks to help reduce spread of covid19. The city authorities’ directive is applicable to all drivers on all routes.
Most Accra trotro buses are not operational though government has eased confinement measures. Several drivers have stayed off the streets in protest against mandatory reduction of passengers without corresponding compensation from the government. For trotro drivers willing to work, slow return to normalcy is a disincentive because few people are boarding.
Today,Accra trotro buses defied an anti covid19 regulation to reduce passenger capacity. The Operators argue that such a measure will lead to loss of revenue. Their opinion is, the announcement should have been accompanied by reduction of fuel prices; a principal cost factor in transport operations.
From tomorrow Thursday,March 26, 2020, Accra trotro buses will reduce passenger capacity per seat by one. By this regulation, Trotro buses, such as Nissan Urban minibuses, that previously carried three persons on a row will now only pick two. This adjustment is meant to help mitigate the spread of covid19.
