CITY OF SAN FERNANDO—More than 50 leaders of the No-to-Jeepney-Phase-Out Coalition and Piston Central Luzon picketed the Central Luzon office of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board here at noon on Friday (Jan. 11) to protest the new developmental routes being drawn up by the agency.
