The trotro fares listed in this schedule is based on official unit cost per mileage. A driver may go a longer route to reach his destination due to passenger density along that road. This detour means, the unit charge for that trip would seem less as compared to total mileage covered.
Though 5 Ghana pesewas exists as a currency unit, consumers hardly trade in it because they claim its too tiny and requires too many to make a transaction. So where an increment in trotro fare will result in a 5 pesewas change, for example, the amount will be rounded up to Ghana 10 pesewas.
There are alternate routes for trotro drivers to reach their destinations. The trotro fares here are based on the longest option so its possible a passenger may pay slightly less on a given journey depending on route.
Accra trotro transport unions measure distance differently from other navigational systems and aids. Distance from station to station is measured by the most profitable route. A trotro bus may need to take a longer detour to reach its destination due to traffic, siting of landmarks or availability of passengers along that route.
Passengers pay full fare from a Terminal no matter where they alight.
The trotro fare for boarding and alighting in between terminals is 70% to 80% of the Terminal fare.
Fares have been rounded up to the nearest whole number or Ghana Cedi in this list.
