The Greater Accra Passenger Transport Executive (GAPTE) and the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) have suspended enforcement activities against unauthorised usage of infrastructure and installations meant for the exclusive operations of the Ayalolo buses on GAPTE along its Accra CMB-Amasaman route.

A statement from AMA, signed by Numo Blafo III, head of Public Affairs, said the suspension would be sustained till a new board is formed to give further direction.
According to AMA, the unauthorised use of infrastructure and installations meant for the exclusive operation of the Ayalolo buses on GAPTE along its Accra CMB-Amasaman route violates the traffic policy of the Assembly.
It said the AMA and GAPTE will continue to carry out its public education programme, identification of exclusive infrastructure and installations meant for the Ayalolo Bus Services by motorists and the general public.
“Rules of engagement pertaining to exclusive infrastructure and installations meant for the Ayalolo Bus Services.
“Public education on legal provisions under the Local Governance Act (Act 940) and the legislative Instrument 1961 of 2009 that empowers the assembly to regulate, manage and enforce traffic regulations in accordance to the relevant laws.
