The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board this week started inspecting bus terminals in the provinces in time for Holy Week.

In Bacolod City, GMA Bacolod reported Friday that LTFRB teams checked buses in two private bus terminals to make sure they are roadworthy.

Also, the LTFRB teams made sure the buses being deployed are not more than 15 years old, in line with the Department of Transportation and Communications’ modernization program.

While most of the buses were found roadworthy, the LTFRB team said some had no fare matrix—a violation of LTFRB rules.

The bus terminal managers said they are addressing the matter and will post the fare matrices on the buses once the LTFRB releases them.

Filipinos are expected to flock to the provinces or to vacation spots to spend the Holy Week with their families. Joel Locsin/KG, GMA News
