The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) announced on its official Facebook page that it will increase the allowed number of the traditional Public Utility Jeepneys (PUJs) in Metro Manila to 1,333 starting Wednesday.
LTFRB approved the operations of these additional 1,333 PUJs, which means that they are now allowed to travel around Metro Manila without special permits. However, the vehicles should still pass the roadworthiness guidelines and possess a valid Personal Passenger Insurance Policy.
Here are the following routes that will be opened based on the approved Memorandum Circular 2020-040.

With this new regulation, jeepney drivers can finally get back on track after losing their source of income for months. During the quarantine, displaced jeepney drivers have mainly relied on the government and other business sector’s aid and initiatives.
As our jeepney drivers get back on the road again let us continue to give our full support to them as they strive to earn a living.
