The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) announced that a total of 980 UV Express units would be allowed back on the road starting today (June 29).
LTFRB Chairman Martin Delgra said that only two passengers per row are allowed to ensure the one-meter physical distance rule. Drivers must also strictly abide by the health protocols by wearing face masks and gloves. Failure to do so might result in the cancellation or suspension of the operators’ and drivers’ franchise.
For more than two months since Luzon and other parts of the country were placed under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), mass transportation had been suspended, with traditional jeepney still not permitted to ferry the roads.
