More than two weeks after the Mindoro Island Transport Summit, Rep. Sato said that she has finally received “concrete” solutions from the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) and the Department of Transportation (DOTr).

The said Mindoro Island Transport Summit was held earlier this year and was participated by the Occidental and Oriental Mindoro.

“Nagbunga na po ang mga kasunduan sa pinatawag nating Mindoro Island Transport Summit noong May 8, 2018. Pagkaraan ng dalawang linggong patuloy nating pakikipag-ugnayan (na may kasama na ring pangungulit),” said Rep. Sato.

According to Sato, here are the answers she got from the transport officials:

1. Sulat ni DOTr Usec. Tim Orbos kay LTFRB Chair Martin Delgra na nagdedetalye ng mga ruta at bilang ng mga UV Express, Mini-bus o Bus na kailangang agarang bigyan ng Provisional Authorities;

2. Sulat ni LTFRB Chair Martin Delgra sa akin na nagsasabing maglalagay sila ng one-stop-shop sa OkSi mismo upang pabilisin na ang pagbibigay ng prankisa sa mga UV Express. Gagawin ito kasama ang OTC at kung kailangan, pati ang DOT Regional office ay tutulong din; at,

3. Board Resolution ng LTFRB na inaalis na ang moratorium sa pagbibigay ng prankisa at kagyat na silang tatanggap ng aplikasyon para mga bagong prankisa sa OkSi.

Sato expressed gratitude to the officials for their fast action to help the people of Mindoro.

“Taos puso ang aking pasasalamat kay DOTr Sec Art Tugade, Usec Tim Orbos, Assec Mark De Leon at LTFRB Chair Martin Delgra sa kanilang pagpupunyagi, malasakit at pakikiisa,” Rep. Sato said.

“Tunay na sa ating sama samang pagkilos makakamit ang higit na ginhawa at mas magandang umaga,” she added.
