MANILA, Philippines – Ipinahayag ng Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) na epektibo na ngayong araw ng Huwebes ang minimum fare sa jeep.

Ayon kay LTFRB Chairman Atty. Winston Ginez, sa halip na P8.50 ay magiging P7.50 na lamang ang pasahe sa jeep sa buong Metro Manila.

“Ito po ay effective immediately ang gawin po natin muna pansamantala habang hindi pa nakukuha ang fare matrix ay ang kasalukuyang fare matrix na naka-post sa kanilang jeep bawas lang ng bawat piso ang babayaran.”

Sa mga estudyante at mga senior citizen ay mayroon pa ring 20% discount kaya P6.00 na lamang ang kanilang pamasahe.

Ibinatay ng LTFRB ang desisyon sa patuloy na pagbaba ng presyo ng petrolyo na umabot na ng halos dose pesos simula pa noong Oktubre.

Noong taong 2008 ng nasa P35.00 ang halaga ng diesel, P7.50 ang minimum fare, noong 2011 naman ng maging P37.00 ang diesel ay nasa P8.00 ang minimum fare, ngayong 2014 ng umabot sa P43.00 ang diesel ay naging P8.50 naman ang minimum fare.

Subalit nilinaw ng LTFRB na ang bawas pasahe ay para sa mga jeep lamang sa Metro Manila at ang mga nasa probinsya ay kailangan pang magsagawa ng mga pagdinig.

Tinanggap naman ng mga jeepney operator ang desisyon, subalit hiniling nila na sana ay magkaroon ng sapat na panahon upang ito ay maipaalam sa lahat ng mananakay.

Ayon kay PISTON President George San Mateo, hindi sapat na maipalabas lamang ito sa telebisyon.

“Bakit po? Hindi lahat makakapanood ng palabas na ito, yung makapanood ngayong tanghali magugulat na 7.50 na lang kasi rollback, yung driver na hindi pa nakapanood sasabihin 8.50 sasabihin nung pasahero hindi, kailangan may lead time bakit ayaw mag anunsyo ng LTFRB ng petsa.”

Iba-iba naman ang naging reaksyon ng ilang jeepney driver.

Ayon kay Glenn Prado, “mahirap magpataas ng pasahe kasi, matagal, kasi ang dami anu di katulad ng pagbaba ng diesel madali lang.”

“Dapat singkwenta lang muna, hindi agad piso mamaya tumaas agad diesel pano mababawi yan di ba,” saad naman ni Richard Cosme.

Masaya naman ang mga commuter sa naturang desisyon. Anila, matagal na nilang hinihintay ang bawas pasahe at napapanahon nang ibigay ito ngayon.

Ayon kay Aling Violy Vargas, “tama lang lalo na pag senior ang laki ng bawas sa min, six lang ngayon eh di okey mas maganda makakatipid kami.”

“Kahit papaano yung piso malaking tulong sa mahihirap katulad ng mga commuters pabor na pabor kami dyan,” masayang pahayag ni Lloyd Abinoja.

Maging ang Malakanyang ay natuwa sa desisyon ng LTFRB.

Ayon kay Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Usec. Abigail Valte, napapanahon ang rollback sa pasahe sa jeep.

Sinabi naman ng LTFRB na maaari na ring magfile ng petisyon for fare reduction para sa mga bus at taxi.

Nilinaw rin ng ahensya na ang bawas pasahe ay provisional lamang o maaaring mabawasan o madagdagan pa, kaya muling nagtakda ang LTFRB ng pagdinig hinggil sa petisyon sa susunod na taon. (Mon Jocson / Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

 

DILG: No LGU in Metro Manila is 100% compliant with road clearing order

Aileen Cerrudo   •   September 17, 2019

None of the Metro Manila local government units has reached 100 percent compliance with the road clearing order, according to the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).

In a statement, the DILG said they still have not identified which of the LGUs are fully compliant with President Rodrigo Duterte’s order to clear all public roads.

“We have not made any determination on which LGUs are fully compliant,” according to DILG Spokesman Jonathan Malaya.

Malaya also said an LGU needs to be fully compliant with the following before it can be declared as obstruction-free:

  • Enact or revisit ordinances related to road clearing and banning of illegal construction
  • Prepare an inventory of roads within their jurisdiction
  • Develop and implement displacement strategies
  • Cause and rehabilitation of recovered public roads

He also added that the DILG will validate the data from the LGUs regarding their status in the road clearing directive.—AAC (with reports from Mon Jocson)

Oil price rollback to happen next week

Maris Federez   •   September 6, 2019

Oil companies will be implementing a price rollback on petroleum products next week.

Oil industry players have estimated a 10 to 25 centavos per liter reduction in the price per liter of diesel and 60 to 80 centavos per liter on gasoline.

This is the 3rd week in a row that oil companies have implemented a price cut on petroleum products.

The rollback is brought about by the movement of oil prices in the world market. (with details from Mon Jocson) /mbmf

Metro Manila mayors confident of meeting DILG deadline

Aileen Cerrudo   •   August 28, 2019

Metro Manila mayors expressed confidence they would meet the deadline of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) to clear public roads in their area.

The mayors have reported during the 25th Metro Manila Council meeting on Tuesday (Aug 27) that their road clearing operations are on track with the scheduled deadline.

San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora reported that 80% of roads have been cleared. Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto said 50 to 60% of national and secondary roads have been cleared while tertiary roads are still being cleared.

Representatives of other cities like Muntinlupa and Caloocan have reported, 100% of their major roads have been cleared. Their operations will still continue in barangay roads.

MMDA Chairman Danilo Lim is elated with the progress in the road clearing operation and said that maintaining will be the difficult part.

“Clearing operations have been successful with the Metro Manila mayors leading the campaign. We can see that there is progress. Our Metro Manila mayors are doing their part but big challenge is maintenance and sustenance,” said Lim.

Lim also warned barangay officials who will refuse to participate in the road clearing operations.

“We asked the barangays captains to do their part in ensuring that cleared roads are free from obstructions. We are warning barangay officials who refused to cooperate may face charges,” he said.—AAC
