Alliance of Transport Organizations (ACTO) National President Efren de Luna said that the LTFRB should clarify the the criteria of phasing out old jeepneys and not just base it by age.
"Ano ba ang batayan nila? Sa edad lang ba? Paano yung mga 15 taon na pero maayos pa ang body at maganda pa ang takbo ng makina? Ano ang standard na dapat unahin alisin? Ano talaga ang programa ng gobyerno sa atin? Tuluyan ba tayong sabay-sabayang aalisan ng karapatan para mabuhay?", he said.
Do you think that it is time to replace old jeepneys, whether the are in good or bad condition, with new-modernized jeepneys such as the E-Jeepney? Is it time to kill the tradition and move on to a new phase in Philippine history?
Tell us what you think.
