The city government has ordered the Cebu South Bus Terminal (CSBT) to follow the city’s curfew amid the community quarantine here.

The CSBT, the biggest transport terminal in the city located along Natalio Bacalso Avenue, is owned and managed by the provincial government.

It reopened on Wednesday after five months of closure.

In his meeting with transport stakeholders on Friday, Mayor Edgardo Labella said the terminal should not operate from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. as the city’s curfew policy remains in effect even as the city has shifted to the least stringent modified general community quarantine (MGCQ).

Labella also ordered that health and safety protocols must be strictly followed at the terminal.

During the meeting, he and other officials of the provincial government, Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board, Department of Health, Cebu City Transportation Office, Cebu City Police Office, and bus companies discussed protocols to be implemented in buses using the terminal.

Labella said passengers must go through the mandatory temperature check and must wear masks and face shields.

People aged 21 years and below and the elderly are still not allowed to enter the CSBT.

Labella said more passengers from the different areas in the province are expected to flock to the city with the easing of quarantine restrictions.

Cebu City and the whole island of Cebu are under MGCQ, which means border restrictions have been eased.

He, however, said the police would continue to man the city’s borders to manage the people coming in and out of the city.

Meanwhile, CSBT officials reported that the terminal only earned PHP70,000 since it reopened on Wednesday.

It may take some time before the CSBT regains its daily income of PHP200,000, CSBT general manager Carmen Quijano said, noting that the terminal’s earnings also depended on rental fees from concessionaires inside the CSBT.

Concessionaires have not been allowed to operate inside the terminal since the start of the pandemic. (PNA)
