LTFRB vows to penalize trip-cutting jeepneys

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) assured the Navotas City government it will act on complaints about trip-cutting jeepneys.

LTFRB Chairman Martin Delgra III said the agency will help the city government crack down on public utility jeepneys (PUJs) that shorten their trips.

“We will address the issue in Navotas. Perhaps similar to what we did in Manila, where we issued SCO (show-casue order) to operators along the route complained of trip-cutting by the City of Manila,” Delgra said.

He said he will invite Navotas officials to a hearing with PUJ operators.

In the Aug. 15 letter to Delgra, Mayor Toby Tiangco said the trip-cutting PUJs are those plying the Recto-Navotas, Monumento-Navotas and Divisoria-Navotas routes.

The PUJs in question usually cut their trips during rainy days or nighttime, Tiangco said.

The city of Manila earlier filed a trip-cutting case against jeepneys on the Baclaran-Divisoria route which the board is currently addressing.

Delgra said the board has conducted two hearings on the trip-cutting in Manila since there are more than 300 operators plying the route.

The LTFRB chief earlier warned trip-cutting jeepney drivers they face a fine of P5,000 for the first offense, P10,000 and the impounding of the unit for 30 days for second offense, and cancellation of franchise for third offense.
