MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Transportation (DOTr) is eyeing to launch its ‘Libreng Sakay’ program in Cavite.
During the inauguration of the new district office of the Land Transportation Office (LTO) in Imus City on Wednesday (May 12), DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade said the department is looking into launching free transportation to essential workers, frontliners and authorized persons outside residence (APORs).
He further assured continuous construction works on vital infrastructure projects in Cavite, including the much-anticipated LRT-1 Cavite Extension Project.
“Ipagtutulakan ko na matapos ang mga istraktura at istasyon ng partial operability section ng LRT-1 Cavite Extension bago matapos ang termino ng Pangulo,” Secretary Tugade said.
(I will make sure that the LRT-1 Cavite Extension will be on partial operability before the term of the President [Duterte] ends.)
Meanwhile, The DOTr continues to upgrade and build new LTO offices nationwide to provide better service to the public.
Since 2016, the department has added 132 LTO extension offices, district offices, licensing centers, and driver’s license renewal offices, including the new office in Imus, Cavite.
