Panabo follows Tagum in prohibiting vans from dropping in terminal

NOV 18-24, 2010

The city government of Panabo disallowed passengers’ vans from dropping in its public terminal starting last Saturday acting positively to the petition letter signed by owners of bus companies including the Metro Shuttle bus firm of Mayor Rey Uy’s family .
City administrator Nemesio Rasgo, in an interview, said that they have to follow the Land Transportation Franchising Regulatory Board’s circular allowing only passengers’ vans to pick up and unload passengers based on the garage-to-terminal, point-to-pointfranchise of vans “even if a lot of income is lost from us” out from the terminal fees.
The garage/terminal-to-terminal franchise of vans means that vans can only pick up and unload passengers from their point of origin of terminal or authorized private garage to their point of destination terminal or authorized garage, states LTFRB Memorandum circular No. 2007-007.
Rasgo said that they have received the petition signed by owners of Metro Shuttle, Bachelor Express,Davao del Norte Express, Land Car Inc., CC/JRC Liner and others.
Tagum City’s traffic officers and police have tightened their watch to the maximum for plying vans not to pick up and unload passengers within the city’s national highway section.
Mayor Rey Uy earlier said he is just following what is in the law in his strong campaign against dropping of passengers’ vans in his city. (Rural Urban News/Cha Monforte with reports from Marvin Pineda, Correspondent)
