Minimum jeepney fares to rise by P1 on Oct. 8

by Carl Santos

COMMUTERS will have to pay more for jeepney rides starting October 8.

On Tuesday, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) approved a P1 provisional fare increase in response to the petitions of transport groups that cited soaring oil prices. 

This means the minimum fare for the first four kilometers will be P13 for a traditional jeepney and P15 for a modern jeepney.

“Piso na provisional fare increase lamang po ang inaprubahan natin sa first four kilometers pero wala pong kahit anong dagdag sa succeeding kilometers. Applicable po ito sa modern at traditional public utility jeepney sa buong bansa simula sa October 8,” LTFRB Chairperson Teofilo Guadiz III said. 

The LTFRB also reminded jeepney drivers and operators to give discounts to qualified groups such as senior citizens, persons with disabilities, and students.
