THE Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board 10 (LTFRB-10) has announced that it will implement the “No Standing Policy” on all buses plying Northern Mindanao routes soon.

LTFRB 10 Regional Director Aminoden Guro told Kabayan Weekly newspaper that this was the decision reached after the same policy has already been applied in Luzon and the Visayas.

Director Guro has called on drivers and operators of buses, vans and other forms of public transportation to follow the exact siting capacity of their vehicles.

Guro said: “Dili na pwede ang magtindog, labina gyod kong taas ang oras sa biyahe kay dili maayo sa panglawas sa pasahero ug dili sila komportable (Standing, especially for long hours of travel will no longer be allowed because it is not good for the passengers’ health and for their being uncomfortable).”

Drivers and operators who will violate the “No Standing Policy” will be acted upon accordingly by the LTFRB. (Cheng Ordonez)
