Benz trotro bus on Odorkor road

Trotro operators persist with demands for fare increase

Trotro operators have not backed down with their demands for higher fares in view of lowered passenger capacity.

Since April 3020 when covid-19 measures to seat less people aboard trotro buses were introduced by authorities, operators have complained about reduced earnings and have elaborately complained about outright losses.

In their latest warning, the trotro owners are intent on arbitrarily reviewing fares upwards if the government their pricing partner does not accede to their concerns.

Trotro fare increments are historically in the ten percentiles but in an election year, its very unlikely the government will not want to incur any further unpopularity with  trotro fare increment.
