MANILA, Philippines – Modern jeepneys are set to resume operations in Metro Manila on Monday, June 22, with 15 routes available to the public, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) said.

The LTFRB said that more modern jeepney routes are expected to open up in the coming days, as the National Capital Region (NCR) maintains its general community quarantine (GCQ) status due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

After the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) over Metro Manila was lifted, several industries were allowed to resume operations to jumpstart the ailing economy.

However, one major problem for workers was the lack of available transportation modes — which left commuters either queuing for hours or disregarding physical distancing measures.
