The buses are meant purposely for intracity operations, John Dramani Mahama said, and delivery has been taken of the first batch.
President Mahama was speaking at a rally on Monday, November 16 when he made this known.
“In every city that I have travelled to abroad, there is private transport provided by taxi drivers [and] mini-buses but there is also public transport,” he said, lamenting how state-owned transport companies like OSA have collapsed.
The buses cannot be used on highways and were brought in for the bus rapid transportation system.
They will operate on e-tickets, President Mahama explained, adding that the introduction of the buses is part of the ‘Changing Lives, Transforming Ghana’ campaign of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government.
