Most Of Buses in Ghana are usually used for long distances travell and between most major cities. There are plenty of bus companies that offer the same routes.

Bus Companies in Ghana can be grouped into two,  In first group there are bus companies with better quality buses. These kind of companies have ticket offices where tickets can be bought in advance or just before the departure. It's better to buy tickets in advance, especially if traveling before or during peak season, holidays etc, when ticket can be sold out faster.

This first group of buses have comfortable seats (V.I.P. bus company being one of them), air condition, they more likely depart on actual time, are relatively fast and don’t stop on the way to pick up more people. Each of bus companies usually has only one station in one city and different bus companies are usually not situated together at the same station.

Please note that you will always have to pay extra for your bigger pieces of luggage. At the STC company, STC staff will weight you luggage and you will pay per kilogram. It is not too expensive, but you are in Ghana, so you can always negotiate with staff. VIP bus and GH Express don't weight but just have fixed prices for the luggage, depends on the size.

In the second group of bus companies in Ghana, there are other (smaller) companies. Their buses are at lower quality and don't use timetables. Tickets cannot be bought in advance since these bus companies don't have  their own offices. Buses also pick up more people on the way and can be very slow, but tickets are cheaper.

The above named companies provide Public bus services but their buses also are available for Rent and tourism purpose all the day. There are also some bus companies which have been registered for private use only like Tourism uses, Hiring services for school, Institutions, churches and other groups.
