MANILA, Philippines—A bus company has filed a petition to ply additional buses to carry relief goods to the battered provinces of Samar and Leyte for free.

Narciso O. Morales, chairman of the board and president of Del Monte Motor Works Inc., operator of the DLTB Bus Company, said the bus firm has filed an urgent motion to the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board for permit to field extra 100 units and augment the 30 units currently servicing the Manila-to-Leyte-Samar route.

In the petition, Morales said donations such as foods, medicines, clothings and other basic necessities can be brought to Samar and Leyte free of charge while passengers will be given substantial discount.

“The use of additional 100 units will surely help in the delivery of the donated items, especially those coming from Manila. Like many others, we seek to help the public and private sectors hasten the delivery of these necessities to our affected countrymen,” Morales added.
