The gradual opening of bus routes is based on the government’s phased approach to public transport.

In accordance with the mandate of the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) and DOTr, public transport operations will gradually be restored. With the commencement of the GCQ, the operation of point-to-point (P2P) buses, taxis, transport network vehicle services (TNVS), and PUBs began operating on designated routes.

The LTFRB reminds operators and drivers of PUBs to follow the protocols set forth by the government to prevent the spread of COVID-19, such as wearing a face mask and gloves, cleaning and disinfecting the individual unit before and after each flight or every two hours, blocking non-permeable and transparent materials, and maintaining passenger seating capacity in accordance with IATF-EID and DOTr guidelines.
