In the meantime, and starting from Tuesday, July 4, 2017, STC is re-launching its Accra-Kumasi services, with a fleet of new luxurious coaches that provide WI-FI services for travellers to afford them a seamless online interaction at no additional charges. In the buses are also provided places of convenience.

The Accra-Kumasi service will commence with 12 schedules each day, with the buses moving at hourly intervals, and being available from 6:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m each day with the exception of Sundays.

“Our clients can enjoy themselves in our new luxurious Scania Marcopolo Buses designed for luxury and comfort and safety for only GHC 35.00,” Nana Akomea said when he interacted with a section of the media at his office yesterday.

The Accra-Kumasi had been suspended for a long period because buses were not available. At the moment, the state transport company has only 50 buses, but, according to Nana Akomea, arrangements have been finalized for the acquisition of 30 new coaches from Brazil in August, this year.

He added the company was also expected to benefit from a Korean Exim bank facility for the purchase of 26 more buses before the end of the year.

With the introduction of innovations, making access to tickets and reservations hustle-free, prospective travellers could make payments via mobile money services on 0555552485.

According to him, the Kumasi market is important to the company's fortunes since many nationals, as well as people from other parts of West Africa, conduct their businesses in the metropolis.

The new MD expressed the hope that the reforms being implemented by his administration would turn around the fortunes of the company around and position STC to reclaim its lost glory.

He expressed his determination to ensure strict internal control systems that would check revenue leakages and control expenditure, to put STC profitable.

“By December, the company should have a complete turnaround,” Nana Akomea stated, adding that plans were far advanced ensure STC’s presence on other major routes across the country, while maintaining a lead on its international services.

The new MD bemoaned the dwindled image of the state transporter but promised to ensure it was revived to play the role it was known for previously.

He urged workers of the company to conduct themselves in a manner that would endear the company to the public and make the brand the travelers’ choice.
