Manila, Philippines – Ayon sa Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board, mas maraming ruta ang bubuksan para sa public utility vehicles (PUVs) oras na masailalim ang National Capital Region at karatig probinsya sa General Community Quarantine.
Planong pag dagdag
Ito ang sinabi ni Manila Rep. Manuel Luis Lopez na tiniyak naman ng LTFRB. Nangako aniya si LTFRB Chairman Martin Delgra III na papayagan ang mas maraming drayber ng jeep at papayagan ding makabalik ang ilan pang PUV.
“Let us make sure that as we approach and enter GCQ, and on day one itself, our mass public transportation hits the ground running. And we expect each day after that to be better and more responsive as we approach the road to normalcy.”
Ayon naman kay Delgra,
“We have received instructions from IATF to increase the number of units and… the basic strategies that we have, as mentioned earlier, we’re going to open up one batch of routes every week and that is the one that we’re going to submit on Friday.”
Dagdag pa nito,
“We actually started this three weeks ago, whereby every week naglalabas tayo ng bagong ruta covering hundreds if not thousands of units. We will continue to do that so we will be able to meet the target”.
Samantala, suportado naman aniya ang naturang proposal ni Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade. Welcome din kay Lopez ang positbong sagot ni Delgra at Tugade.
Ayon ki Lopez,
“We see no more reason why we can’t enforce this, Asec. Martin, dahil Congress is with you, IATF is with you, DOTr is with you. So now, the ball is in the hands of LTFRB.”
