LTFRB increases traditional PUJ routes to 49

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has now opened a total of 49 routes for public utility jeepneys (PUJs) starting today, July 3.

This latest move is an expansion of the 15 initial PUJ routes approved to resume operations last June 22.

However, the traditional jeepneys must first be deemed ‘roadworthy’ before they can return to ferrying passengers.

In line with Memorandum Circular (MC) 2020-006, the government transport agency stated that traditional PUJs can return to their existing routes with no special permit necessary starting July 3, amid the extension of the General Community Quarantine (GCQ). 

A QR Code will also be issued to PUJ operators prior to resumption of operations, which must be printed and displayed on the corresponding PUJ unit. 

Jeepney operators are also required to furnish LTFRB with a list of ‘roadworthy’ PUJs that are currently registered with the Land Transportation Office (LTO) and have a valid Personal Passenger Insurance Policy.

The transport agency also emphasized that the existing fare of P9.00 for the first four kilometers and P1.50 for succeeding kilometer is still in place, and PUJ drivers and operators shall make no fare adjustments unless approved by the Board.

PUJ operators and drivers are likewise required to implement a set of safety measures for passengers, such as checking of body temperature, wearing masks and gloves at all times, limiting the number of passengers at a maximum 50 percent capacity, and distributing Passenger Contact Forms for COVID-19 tracking.
