Starting on October 28 (Saturday), students would be able to avail of fare discount on weekends and holidays, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) said Monday.
In an October 11 Memorandum Circular, the LTFRB said that "students can avail of the twenty percent (20%) discount from Monday to Sunday including summer breaks, legal and special legal holidays."
"Post-graduate students (those taking up medicine, law, masteral, doctoral degrees and the like) cannot avail of the said fare discount," it added.
LTFRB said that this was an amendment to the Memorandum Circular 2005-014 or the grant of fare discount to elderly, disabled persons and students.
