LTFRB to hold joint developmental route planning with 2 Mindoro provinces to solve transport woes
A joint developmental route planning will be held in Calapan City on April 23 to 27 to be led by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) which will tackle the primary requirements needed by vehicles plying the streets of Oriental and Occidental Mindoro in order to secure franchises and permit to operate.
“Ito ay bunga ng kahilingan ng Bise Gobernador Peter de Jesus Alfaro at Sangguniang Panlalawigan na isagawa ng mas maaga ang capacity building para sa preparasyon ng Local Public Transportation Route Plan, pre- requisite upang magkaroon ng naturang prangkisa sa bisa ng Resolution No. 107- s. 2018 na inihain ni Bokal AJ Rebong noong 27 March 2018 sa Sangguniang Panlalawigan ng Oksidental Mindoro,” the provincial government of Occidental Mindoro said.
The said developmental route planning was originally scheduled on August to September this year but the LTFRB will hold it later this month.
LTFRB Regional Director Gualberto Gualberto recently visited the San Jose town where he led a meeting to resolve the transport crisis in Mindoro following the cancellation of the permit of Dimple Star Bus.
“Nabanggit na magkakaroon ng rutang San Jose- SAblayan, Sablayan-Mamburao, Mamburao-Abra de Ilog at Mamburao-Paluan para sa kaligtasan ng mananakay sa inter municipality na biyahe ng sasakyan/van,” said the province.
Expected to attend in the said meeting are the Provincial Planning and Development Office (PPDO) of the two provinces, chairmen of committees of trabsportation and communication of both Sangguniang Panlalawigan, Sangguniang Bayan of municipalities and Municipal Planning and Development Office.
