Oplan Ligtas Biyahe: Traveling by land

From the Department of Transportation and Communications and Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office

Land travel

The Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) reminds expressway operators to strictly implement traffic rules and regulations in order to avoid any unfavorable incidents. Roving teams will be deployed in areas where stoning incidents and vandalism of right-of-way fences occur, and for fast response to motorist emergencies.

Point-to-point bus services will be suspended from March 24 to 27 to give way to preventive maintenance works, while airport bus services will continue to run during Holy Week with the exception of March 25 (Good Friday).

The Light Rail Transit Line 1 (LRT-1), Line 2 (LRT-2), and Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3) operations will be suspended fromMarch 24 to 27 to allow heavy maintenance works. Operations will resume on March 28. The Philippine National Railways (PNR) will likewise suspend stop operations from March 24 to 26, but will resume on March 27.

Reminders for road passengers

Passengers planning to travel by bus are advised to buy tickets early.

The public is reminded to avoid riding/taking colorum vehicles, as these do not have legitimate passenger insurance policies, in case of any accidents, etc.

Call or tweet LTFRB in case of complaints against PUV drivers/operators/ companies at 0921-4487777, (02) 426-2515, or @LTFRB_Chairman (Twitter).

Motorists using the tollways may follow @TRBSAFE on Twitter for updates on traffic flow, road conditions, etc.
