Commercial drivers in Accra to protest against BRT system from September19

Sept 16, 2016: Commercial drivers within the Accra metropolis have threatened to embark on strike on Monday, September 19, in protest against the introduction of the Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) system.

The drivers, who operate under a new union known as the Committed Drivers Association (CDA), have complained that the BRT will eventually drive them out of business.

BRT could be rolled out before end of 2016 President John Mahama has promised to commission the BRT system before the end of this year, to boost intra-city transportation.

The buses are expected to ply between Accra and Amasaman, Accra and Ofankor, Accra and Adenta, Accra and Tema and Accra and Kasoa.

It is government’s hope that this new transport system will improve vehicular movement in the central business district and reduce travel hours along some of the busy roads.
