Manila, Philippines – Inatasan ang lahat ng  Department of Transportation (DOTr) ang lahat ng public utility vehicle (PUV) operator na tiyaking hanggang 70% lamang ang kapasidad ng mga pasahero ngayong Alert Level 3 na sa  Metro Manila.

Sa inisyung memorandum ng Land Transportation Office (LTO) at Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), binalaan nila ang land-based transportation stakeholders at operators na lalabag.

“[T]he non-observance of health protocols onboard PUVs or a violation of the 70% maximum passenger capacity order are considered violations of franchise conditions.”

 “With the continued rise of COVID-19 cases in NCR, the DOTr enjoins our land-based transport operators to remind passengers to strictly observe minimum health protocols and ensure that the maximum allowable passenger capacity is followed,” ayon kay Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade.

“We cannot let our guard down. Following the government’s minimum health protocol is for our greater good. We must remain vigilant so we can reverse the uptick of cases in the country.”  RNT/FGDC
