LTFRB Launches First Taxi Services in Ilocos
Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) Chairman Atty. Martin B. Delgra III led the inauguration ceremony for the first taxi services in Ilocos.
The taxi service was opened given the increasing demand for additional mode of transportation for the area’s growing population and the steady rise of tourism in Ilocos.
The opening of new routes and franchise for taxi services in the region is part of the PUV Modernization Program (PUVMP), the biggest non-infrastructure program of the Duterte Administration, which aims to modernize the public transportation sector in the Philippines.
The LTFRB remains steadfast in its commitment to provide safe, reliable, comfortable, affordable, and environmentally sustainable public transportation to our most valuable stakeholder - the riding public.
