BAGUIO CITY - Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) chair Atty. Martin Delgra III has confirmed the resumption of operations of public utility buses (PUB) going out and entering Baguio City that will begin within the next two weeks.

During his visit to the City of Pines, he said that they are already arranging for the LTFRB to approve the said matter although the operation of passenger buses is only on a limited basis.

He said that if the operation of Baguio's inter-regional buses continues to be implemented, one seat apart and not the 50 percent operating capacity protocol will be followed.

The LTFRB's decision asserts that if the department's issues are clear in the Baguio plan, the number of passengers will be allowed to increase, although the minimum health protocols against Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) must still be carried out.

Land Transportation Office (LTO) - Cordillera regional director Francis Rey Almora has earlier announced that the continuation of the provincial bus operations entering and leaving the Cordillera region will depend on the decisions and recommendations of those concerned local government units and health protocols against COVID-19 should still be complied with.

Mayor Magalong also said that the city government has allowed the operation of three bus companies with routes to the National Capital Region (NCR), Region 3, Pangasinan, and some areas in Region 1.

He added that 200 to 250 passengers will be permitted to enter Baguio City and they will comply with the conditions set by the city government.
