TACLOBAN CITY - Ten modernized public utility jeepneys (PUJ) will operate on the route connecting Tacloban City and St. Paul's Campetic via Maharlika, and vice versa.

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) Region 8 and East Visayas Transport Cooperative (EVISTRANSCO) launched the said units on Tuesday, April 5, in Palo, Leyte.

During the grand launching event, Palo Vice Mayor Ronnan Christian Reposar welcomed everyone who attended the momentous occasion.

Governor Leopoldo Dominico Petilla of Leyte congratulated EVISTRANSCO on its success and expressed his unwavering support for the modernization program.

As the event's highlight, LTFRB-8 Regional Director Gualberto N. Gualberto granted provisional authority to EVISTRANSCO Chairman Rosemarie Lumbre, who expressed her heartfelt gratitude to those who have contributed to the success and development of East Visayas Transport Cooperative (EVISTRANSCO).

Mr. Raymond Ogsimer, General Manager of Autokid Trucks Trading Corporation, presented the keys for the ten units, followed by the ribbon-cutting.

The modernization of public utility jeepneys is a critical component of President Rodrigo Duterte's flagship program, the Public Utility Vehicle Modernization Program (PUVMP).

According to the LTFRB, the PUVMP "envisions a restructured, modern, well-managed, and environmentally sustainable transportation sector in which drivers and operators have secure, sufficient, and dignified livelihoods and commuters arrive quickly, safely, and comfortably." —Tacloban News Update (Source: LTFRB-8)
