Metro Mass Transit Limited (MMT)

Metro Mass Transit Ltd was incorporated in March 2003 as a limited liability company under the Ghana Companies Code (1963) Act 179.

Providing transport for all citizens and making Ghana a transport hub for the sub-region are the two main policy goals of both the National Transport plan (2008) and Transport Sector Medium-Term Development plan (2014 and 2018).

These national plans recognize the role of mass transport in the socio-economic development of any fast-developing nation and therefore the establishment of Metro Mass Transit Limited to lead the path towards the re-introduction of the public mass transport system in Ghana.
