MANILA, Philippines — The Land Transportation Office-National Capital Region West (LTO-NCR-West) on Sunday said it apprehended five taxi drivers after refusing passengers who returned to Metro Manila after spending their holidays in the provinces.

In a statement, the LTO said the arrests were part of the agency’s implementation of “Oplan Isnabero” and were made during an operation at the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX) and in Pasay City.


“Patuloy rin na magsasagawa ng operasyon ang ahensya upang matiyak ang kaayusan at kaligtasan sa daan (the agency will also continue to conduct operations to ensure order and safety on the road),” said LTO-NCR-West Director Roque Verzosa.


Verzosa explained that according to Joint Administrative Order No. 2014-01, the penalty for “refusal to render service to the public or convey passenger to destination” ranges from P5,000 up to P15,000 and cancellation of the Certificate of Public Conveyance (CPC).

Verzosa then reminded taxi drivers to perform their responsibilities well following the increasing number of people needing public transportation.

Other operations were also done in different areas in Metro Manila under the jurisdiction of LTO-NCR-West.

During the operations conducted from January 3 to 5, 2023, LTO enforcers were deployed to bus terminals to make sure that taxi drivers would not refuse passengers who are going home from the provinces.
