Transport fares reduced by 15.3%; takes effect on Monday

The Road Transport Operators has announced a 15.3 % reduction in transport fares across the country beginning Monday, December 19, 2022.

The fares reduction cover shared taxis, intra-city (Trotro), intercity, and haulage.

In a public notice on Friday, December 16, 2022, the Road Transport Operators said, “Following these negotiations and in consideration of the Drivers, Commuters and the General Public, we have resolved to the existing transport fares by 15.3 %”

The Operators said the reduction was in the wake of “the recent reductions in prices of petroleum products, it became necessary to engage stakeholders to give consideration to a review of the rates in line with the Administration Instrument.”

“Consequently, series of negotiation meetings were held with stakeholders to agree on an acceptable level of fare reduction commensurate with the current fuel prices.”

It urged the Commercial Transport Operators to “comply with the new fares and post same at their loading terminals” adding “we further request Operators, Commuters and the General Public to kindly cooperate for the successful implementation of the new fares.”
