LTFRB rolls back
jeep fare by 50 cents
BY CARLA GOMEZ
The Land Transportation and Franchising Regulatory Board yesterday issued an en banc resolution reducing the jeepney fare in Western Visayas by 50 centavos, its regional director, Porfirio Clavel, said yesterday.
The order is effective immediately but drivers need to post new fare guides in their vehicles, which they can acquire for free from LTFRB offices in their areas, he said.
Clavel said he is giving the drivers until the end of the week to post their guides or they will be fined for failing to comply.
