Many transport groups have rallied for the increase of minimum fares for public utility vehicles since the rise in oil prices. 

In the statement, LTFBR said:

“The agency recognized the need for a fare increase following the continuing rise of oil prices and consulted the National Economic Development Authority (NED) and the Department of Energy on the matter.”

“In the decision released by LTRFB, the agency conducted a study thru its Franchise Planning and Monitoring Division (FPMD). The FPMD used the fare adjustment formula based on Memorandum Circular 2019-035, the opinion of different stakeholders, increasing operational cost of PUVs, and the opinion of the NEDA,” it added.

The 20 percent discount for Senior Citiznes, PWDs, and students are also still effective. – WhatALife!
