Transfers of franchise name delay fuel subsidy for jeepney operators

Hundreds of public utility jeepneys operators have yet to receive their fuel subsidy from the government due to the problem of transfer of franchise documents, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board-10 said.

In the region, more than 3,000 PUJ operators are expected to receive the P5,000 assistance under the Department of Transportation’s Pantawid Pasada Program which is being coursed through the LTFRB.

The assistance is given to them in the form of cash card which operators can use to avail of fuel at LTFRB-accredited gas stations.

But 30 percent or close to a thousand of those jeepney operators cannot claim the subsidy as the franchise permits of many of the PUJ units that were sold have not yet been transferred to the new owners, according to LTFRB-10 regional director Aminoden Guro,

The agency requires that only those operators whose name appeared on the franchise papers issued by LTFRB can avail of the fuel subsidy. (
