The agency said that qualified drivers will get the financial aid through the system already established by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) under the Pantawid Pasada Program.“The Landbank of the Philippines shall disburse money straight to the cash cards issued to drivers,” it said.

Calling the move “timely,” DOTr also said it will be raising to the national government’s pandemic task force the idea of approving “a significant increase” in the passenger capacity of public transportation as the National Capital Region and other parts of the country transition into more relaxed quarantine levels. headtopics.com
