Within 90 days after the effectivity of the proposed Act, the Department of Transportation (DOTr), through the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) and the Land Transportation Office (LTO) and Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), in consultation with the different public transport companies and associations of operators and drivers of PUVs
, shall formulate the implementing rules and regulations (IRR) of the proposed Act.
Bus operators will be relocated to terminals in the cities of Paranaque, Santa Rosa and Valenzuela where passengers may transfer to Metro-bound PUVs
While the agency decided to start with PUVs
, Nebrija advised private motorists to keep their eyes on the road and to stay in their lane.
It shall also make available loans to finance the acquisition of new PUVs
to qualified prospective borrowers.
Q: What are the restrictions on the installation of campaign propaganda on PUVs
Commuters coming into the capital will have to transfer to Metro Manila-bound PUVs
The program will streamline and organize the public transportation system's four- to six-wheeled PUVs
to make them safer, more efficient, and eco-friendly.
All they have to do is send us a request letter as our basis for such an activity, he said, adding this is a big help to increase awareness among transport sector especially drivers of PUVs
including the habal-habal.
The agency also continues to intensify its "Anti- Colorum" campaign against illegal PUVs
and its "Oplan Isnabero" against taxi units with franchise violations this Holy Week.
The first, she said, had been already addressed by the availability of more efficient and eco-friendly PUVs
Under the SPEED PUVs
program, transport cooperatives and corporations can tap LandBank's P1 billion credit facility to acquire new PUV
units that are compliant with the Philippine National Standard specifications set by the Department of Trade and Industry for PUV
Class 2 and Class 3.
Therefore, these PUVs
can continue to operate within the bounds of legal operations.
