GHANA BUYS 800 NEW BUSES
The Ghanese government has decided to purchase 800 new buses for the Metro Mass Transit and Inter-City State Transport Corporation (ISCT) companies. All 200 of the buses will operate on compressed natural gas while the 600 others will operate on diesel.
The Ghanese public transport system needs the additional buses in order to keep her service going. MMT threatened to suspend operations because of the limited amount of buses.
As part of the Government’s effort to improve public mass transportation, the Ministry initiated processes for the acquisition of these buses for the two Public Bus Companies. The objective is to improve the current bus fleet of Metro Mass and Inter-City State Transport Corporation (ISCT).
In all a total of 800 buses will be acquired. These include 200 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and 500 diesel buses for the Metro Mass Transit and the remaining 100 diesel buses for ISTC company.
