UV Express, modern jeeps to resume operations
Mass transportation is gradually returning to the National Capital Region (NCR). Following the resumption of operations by train and rail operators and public utility buses (PUBs) from June 1, it is now the turn of operators and drivers of UV Express and Jeepney to get back to work.
The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has given modern public jeepneys (PUJs) the go-ahead as of today, June 12, starting with 15 subway lines, as part of the agency's Phase 2 plans to resume Community Quarantine (GCQ) for public transportation in general.
In a memorandum circular dated June 19, Friday, the LTFRB said that modern PUJs and other entities that met the requirements of the Omnibus Franchising Guidelines (OFG) were allowed to serve the first 15 identified Jeepney routes, including:
Novaliches - Malinta via Paso de Blas
Bagumbayan Taguig - Pasig via San Joaquin
Fort Bonifacio Gate 3 - Guadalupe Market Market ABC Loop Service
Pandacan - Leon Guinto
Quezon Avenue - LRT 5th Avenue Station

LTFRB also plans to reopen 20 more PUJ routes - 10 on June 24 and another 10 on June 26 - before the month ends.
