“Maaaring bumiyahe ang mga roadworthy public utility vehicles (PUVs) na may valid at existing Certificate of Public Convenience (CPC) o Application for Extension of Validity, at kinakailangang naka-rehistro sa Personal Passenger Insurance Policy ang bawat unit sa mga rutang nakapaloob sa MC (Roadworthy PUVs with valid and existing CPC or Application for Extension of Validity and registered to a Personal Passenger Insurance Policy will be allowed to ply the routes included in the MC),” the LTFRB said.

It said the operators allowed to resume service must also secure a QR code from the LTFRB’s website at https://ltfrb.gov.ph/ to be posted on their TPUJ.

“Muling pinapaalala ng ahensya na walang ipatutupad na taas-pasahe sa mga naturang TPUJ, maliban na lang kung ipag-uutos ito ng LTFRB (We are reiterating that there is no fare increase allowed for these TPUJs unless ordered by the LTFRB),” the LTFRB said.
