Without the fare matrix posted inside jeepneys, drivers could not charge their passengers the new minimum fare of P10.

The LTFRB said that if a driver charges the public with P10 without the fare matrix, they would be fined for overcharging their passengers. This is punishable as stated under Joint Administrative Order 2014-01.

LTFRB’s NCR office distributed a total of 803 fare matrices on Monday. Meanwhile, about 717 and 566 fare matrices were issued in Regions 3 and 4, respectively. Its main office, meanwhile, distributed a total of 279 fare matrices to jeepney drivers.

The board reiterated its call for jeepney drivers to secure the said document before collecting the new fare from passengers. /ee
