TACLOBAN CITY — A launching ceremony was held on January 26, 2023, at Plaza Rizal in Tacloban City to unveil a new fleet of modernized public transportation vehicles.

The event was led by the Regional Director of LTFRB Region 8, Gualberto N. Gualberto, and the Chief Transportation Development Officer, Engr. Christopher S. Capistrano, along with the PUVMP Region 8 Team.

Said units are equipped with air conditioning, providing a more comfortable travel experience for commuters in V&G Tacloban.

He also expressed his gratitude to the members of TAVAGCADOTCO for joining the PUV Modernization Program and for their efforts in providing a safe and comfortable transport system in the City.

The Provisional Authority for the modernized PUJ units was awarded by LTFRB Regional Director Gualberto N. Gualberto and accepted by the Chairman of TAVAGCADOTCO, Mr. Wilson B. Bayang. Mr. Bayang thanked LTFRB and the Land Bank of the Philippines for the support and trust given to their Cooperative.
