After allowing UV Express vehicles back on the road again, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has now released the specific guidelines for the resumption of operations of traditional jeepneys in Metro Manila under general community quarantine (GCQ).

According to LTFRB Memorandum Circular No. 2020-026, public utility jeepneys (PUJ) that ply certain routes may be allowed to resume operations on July 3 with no special permits necessary. The only requirements are that the PUJ must be currently registered roadworthy with the LTFRB, and must have a valid personal passenger insurance policy. The agency will then issue specific QR codes that must be printed and displayed on the qualified vehicles. Operators may download these codes via the LTFRB website.

The LTFRB has also clarified that no fare adjustments shall be applied without prior approval, so the existing fare of P9 for the first 4km and P1.50 for each succeeding kilometer must be followed. Operators and drivers must also comply with the safety guidelines that the government has laid down particularly for PUV operations, which you can read here.

In addition, PUJ drivers must distribute ‘Passenger Contact Forms’ and have these accomplished by their passengers prior to alighting the vehicle. A drop box inside the vehicle must be provided for collection purposes, and operators must collate and file these forms as needed. The data collected will be used to facilitate contact tracing, a system that we first heard of several weeks back.
