The directive to implement Operation Plan (OPLAN) AIR (Add routes/PUVs, increase speed/capacity, reduce travel time) is in line with the decision of President Rodrigo Duterte and his Cabinet to approve the recommendations proposed by the Economic Development Cluster (EDC) to revive the economy.
The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) Chair Martin Delgra III assured the public that the agency is on top of the instructions given by the Secretary, and that the changes in current regulations will be made at the soonest possible time.
“Agaran po nating ipatutupad ang one-seat apart rule sa Public Utility Vehicles (PUVs) na may striktong pagsunod sa public safety health protocols. Pinaplansta na lamang ang mga detalye nito na maaaring ilabas ngayong linggo. Ang pagdaragdag ng mga ruta ay patuloy na ring tinatrabaho ng ahensya.” Delgra added. (PIA-NCR)
