Negros gov calls on PUJ, bus drivers to heed P.50 rollback

Negros Occ. (13 November) -- Negros Occ. Gov. Elpedio Zayco urged jeepney and bus drivers here to heed the directive of the LTFRB to lower their fares by P.50.

The governor made this call after commuters complained that many drivers do not follow the new adjustment fare rate as a result of rounds of substantial lowering of the price of gasoline and other oil products.

He also called on LTFRB officials to properly implement the new rate and explain this to the drivers so that they will be guided accordingly.

The LTFRB announced the P.50 for the first five kilometers fare deduction last week. Failure to comply carries a penalty of P500.

LTFRB Regional Chief Porfirio Clavel encourage commuters to get the plate number of public utility vehicles who refuse to abide by the rule.

He said the absence of a new matrix is not a valid reason for drivers not implement the rollback.

Jessie Ortega, United Negros Drivers and Operators Center (UNDOC) official said he will meet with his members to explain the guidelines and also to remind them to comply with it.

The Arroyo administration is in the forefront of calling for the reduction of oil prices when its cost per barrel is falling sharply in the world market and consequently ordered the study of its effects on lowering fare rates in the country to ease the financial burden of Filipino families.
