Jeepney fare rollback illegal, transport group claims

The one-peso rollback on the minimum fare on jeepneys in Metro Manila that the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board announced last week is illegal and drivers cannot be blamed for still charging passengers P8.50, a transport group said.
According to a "24 Oras" report aired Sunday evening, the Liga ng Transportasyon at mga Operator sa Pilipinas said the fare rollback is illegal unless the LTFRB comes out with a new fare matrix showing minimum fare of P7.50.

It added the board has yet to issue a formal order to rollback the minimum fare.

The LTFRB has said it does not need to release a new fare matrix for the provisional fare reduction. — JDS, GMA News
