Bacolod’s Local Public Transport Route Plan (LPTRP) turned over the notice of compliance from the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) last Monday in order to prepare for the implementation of the Public Utility Vehicle PUV Modernization Program (PUVMP).

We would be able to transform the public transport landscape of Bacolod in the next three months. The routes, identified in partnership with the Department of Transportation and LTFRB, are those seen as viable and sustainable,” Martin Delgra III, the chairman of the LTFRB, said during the Modern PUV Caravan held at SM City Bacolod. “It’s not just about shifting into new vehicle units, it’s the system itself that we want to change. We started January 2018 and we continue to implement it,

Delgra mentioned that the transition period will run until June 2020 and “everything will be mandatory” after the transition ends. He also said that the PUVMP would not be possible without the support of the local government as well as the transport stakeholders themselves.

We will assist you in forming cooperatives so you can apply for routes,” Delgra told the transport groups regarding the route plan. “I’d like to think that the operators are receptive. In fact, I’ve talked to a number of them. They’re very receptive, we just need continuing engagement in terms of what the program is all about, what the elements of modernization are.

Carlos Jose Lopez, Bacolod City Councilor, said he supports the PUVMP for the purpose of providing commuters a safe and comfortable trip and protecting the environment as well.

About 67 percent of air pollution is caused by jeepneys, that’s why I’m pushing for this. I hope that as soon as possible, we can start the implementation here in Bacolod,” Lopez said.
