LTFRB: Jeepney modernization long overdue

THE chairman of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) yesterday said that the modernization of jeepneys in the country is overdue.

For a long time, Assistant Secretary Martin Delgra said, there was no modernization program for public utility jeepneys (PUJ), which is a large sector serving a huge number of commuters.

“This particular sector, compared to other denominations, are less likely to assume the same role as that of the bus operator so the government has to come in to address that social need,” he said.
