The increment of the fare was influenced by the increasing service charges and some taxes at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority(DVLA) and the ports.

“As we speak, the service charge at DVLA has been increased to 15%, tariffs on spare parts increased to 40%, the tariff on Lubricants increased by 25%.

“Due to the rapid increase of these services, we are calling on all Ghanaians to comply with the introduction of the new fare coming Monday.”
