CEBU CITY – The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) in Central Visayas is now issuing special permits to private vehicles commissioned to ferry workers of essential establishments, medical front-liners and public officials and employees.
The Office of Presidential Assistant for the Visayas (OPAV) deploys Ceres buses to ferry front-line medical workers to and from hospitals in Metro Cebu. Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB-7) Regional Director Eduardo Montealto Jr. (inset) on Thursday (April 2, 2020) said private vehicles commissioned to ferry workers of essential establishments, front-line workers, and public officials and employees need to secure a special permit to legalize their operations during the enhanced community quarantine due to Covid-19
Montealto said vehicles carrying passengers without such special permit can be considered as “colorum” and will be flagged down by operations personnel of the LTFRB-7.
