LTFRB launches service contract program

Public utility vehicle drivers, especially those still unable to work due to the pandemic, may register with the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) service contracting program starting Wednesday, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

The service contracting program allows PUV drivers to earn a steady income — PHP11 per kilometer for traditional and modern jeepneys and PHP23.10 for passenger buses aside from incentives or demerits based on service quality, commuter feedback, and performance of the driver.

In an advisory, the LTFRB said the activity would be held at the Quezon City Memorial Circle covered court from Wednesday to Sunday (Nov. 25 - 29) from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.


Those included in the program have to meet specific performance indicators to improve the quality of transport service and for them to receive the subsidy.

The program was launched early this month with a budget of some PHP5.58 billion as part of the Bayanihan to Recover as One Act or “Bayanihan 2."

The PUV drivers who would like to avail of the program should bring the original and photocopies of their professional driver’s license, a certificate signed by their operator that proves they are a designated PUV driver, two photocopies of their operator’s valid ID (showing both front and back) with three signatures, and a photocopy of the official receipt or certificate of registration of their designated PUV.
