Wazzup Pilipinas!

Led by enforcers from the Land Transportation Office (LTO), ten (10) colorum buses have been caught in different areas of the country since yesterday, 19 June 2014, marking the implementation of Joint Administrative Order (JAO) No. 2014-01 of the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC), the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), and the LTO.

DOTC Secretary Jun Abaya advised the LTO to “Carry on with the good job so far of enforcing safety measures which will protect motorists and commuters alike. Let’s continue creating a culture of road discipline for the public good.”

According to LTO Assistant Secretary Alfonso Tan, Jr., the 10 operators which were caught by traffic enforcers are the following: 

  • Two (2) Bachelor Express buses in Region 10, carrying passengers from Butuan City to Cagayan. Bus with temporary plate no. 151010 was operating on an ordinary route in violation of its excursion/special trip authorization, and no registration papers could be presented to authorities. Bus with plate no. LYE-668 was also operating on an ordinary route in violation of its excursion/special trip authorization.
  • Buenasher Transport Corporation in Metro Manila, with plate no. PVH-460. The bus was playing EDSA with an expired franchise, whose last extension of validity ended in January 2013.
  • Lucena Lines in Alaminos, Laguna, with plate no. TYK-695. The bus had an expired vehicle registration, as well as an expired franchise.
  • Jerel Transport Corp (Sunrays Bus Lines) in Region 7, with plate no. GWF-633.
  • Two (2) Super 5 buses in Region 5, both carrying Manila-bound passengers. Bus with plate no. PIA-826 was coming from Surigao to Manila. Bus with plate no. UVC-699 originated from Davao to Manila.
  • AOM Bus with plate no. 051206 also in Region 5, carrying passengers from Naga City bound for Legazpi City.
  • Dalin Liner in Region 2, with plate no. BVB-591
  • NELBUSCO, also in Region 2, with plate no. BVK-502.

“The LTO is serious in putting a stop to rampant violations of land transportation rules and regulations. As part of our reform program, one of our priorities is to instill orderliness on our roads, for both public utility and private vehicles,” said Tan.

“These colorum buses have been impounded in accordance with JAO 2014-01, and the fines will go straight to the National Treasury, once paid. Let this be a warning to colorum operators. The LTO will enforce traffic rules for the sole purpose of ensuring safety in land transportation,” Tan added.
