/ 03:14 PM March 30, 2014


MANILA, Philippines – You will face penalties, Malacañang on Sunday warned jeepney drivers thinking of hiking their fare.

“Nagbabala na po ang ating LTFRB (Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board) sa pamamagitan ni tagapangulo Winston Ginez. Hindi po pahihintulutan ‘yang walang karapatan at walang batayang pagsingil ng pamasahe,” Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma said over state-run DZRB.


(The LTFRB already gave a warning through chairman Winston Ginez. We will not allow the unjustified and baseless charging of fares.)


There are laws and administrative orders issued by the LTFRB detailing possible penalties and sanctions that may be imposed on violators, said the Palace official.

Transport group Alliance of Concerned Transport Organizations earlier announced that they would enforce a P0.50 fare hike or P8.50 minimum fare on Monday despite the LTFRB’s decision to reject the request.
