This report summarises the main discussion points, recommendations and suggestions, which culminated from the stakeholder workshop of the project on the Rural transport diagnostic study in Ghana. The workshop involved a plenary session where the consultants presented their reports followed by a break-up session for group discussions. The topics covered in the group discussions included: questions relating to use of formal means of public transport, questions relating to the provision of transport services by motorcycle (taxis) and motor tricycles, and cross-cutting issues, including financing of public transport on low volume roads and the roles of transport unions and the police. It was recommended that the Road Traffic Regulations 2012 (LI 2180) be reviewed to allow the commercial use of motorcycles and tricycles in rural areas. Other recommendations have been made and presented in this report.
