LTFRB asks Gensan support for transport modernization


Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) Chairman Martin Delgra III has sought the cooperation of the local government of General Santos City and the various transport groups on the government’s modernization program.

Delgra made the call during his recent meeting with the officials from Gensan LGU, LTFRB, Sangguniang Panlungsod, Interim Committee on Transportation, and the Public Transportation Alliance of GenSan (PTAG).

“Lisud ang (transport) modernization and we (the government) need help,” Delgra said.

He said the local government should align its transport plans with the national government.

However, the official said the LGU should safeguard the interest of the transport groups and the latter should be mindful of the interest of the riding public.

“Importante wala’y mabiyaan,” Delgra said.

Gensan is the first LGU in the country to pass its own Local Public Transport Route Plan (LPTRP), an integral part of the mandatory transport modernization program of the national government.
