The gradual opening of bus routes is based on the government's gradual approach to public transport.
In accordance with the mandate of the Inter-Agency Task Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) and DOTr, the operation of public transport is gradually being restored. With the start of the GCQ, point-to-point buses (P2P), taxis, TNVS (Transport Network Vehicle Services) and PUBs began operating on certain routes.
The LTFRB reminds operators and drivers of PUBs to follow governmental protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19, e.g. For example, wearing a face mask and gloves, cleaning and disinfecting the individual unit before and after each flight, or blocking opaque and transparent materials every two hours, and maintaining passenger seating capacity in accordance with IATF-EID and DOTr guidelines.
