The mother body of public transport unions in the country -The Ghana Road Transport Union - GPRTU, has announced that several other factors need to be considered before transport fare can be reduced.

In an interview with TV3 the Greater Accra regional chairman of the GPRTU, Robert Sabah said "the transport fares can't just go down before of the reduction in fuel prices. We have to meet and consider a few things.

"For example the reduction doesn't mean that the insurance companies would reduce how much we pay, it doesn't mean the income tax we pay would reduce, it doesn't mean the loans we take and the lending rate would come down.

"Also the spare parts we buy: is not reducing in price, so all these factors must be considered before we can announce anything."

This follows the announcement of 10% reduction in fuel prices by the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) which takes effect from January 1, 2015.

This has result in many passengers calling out for a reduction in transport fares, but this is not going to happen anytime soon.
