LTFRB Reminds PUV Drivers On Student Fare Discount

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) reminded public utility vehicle (PUV) drivers to grant students a 20% fare discount when classes start on Monday.

LTFRB board member Aileen Lizada said students are entitled to discounts even during weekends and holidays.

“We remind all PUVs to provide students 20 percent discount even on holidays, weekends, 24/7, 365 days even if they are on vacation, this must be granted,” Lizada said in a message to reporters through Viber.

The LTFRB has released Memorandum Circular No. 2017-004 last October, allowing students to avail of fare discounts, including during weekends and holidays.

Post-graduate students still need to pay in full, such as students studying medicine, law, as well as those taking master’s degree or doctorate. (PNA)
