The government has allowed some routes of traditional public utility jeepneys (PUJs) to operate in Metro Manila under the general community quarantine (GCQ) starting July 3, 2020.

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) and the Department of Transportation said a quick response (QR) code must be obtained by the operator by downloading it from the LTFRB website, and printed and displayed on the jeepneys.

Operators must ensure that PUJs were registered as roadworthy with the Land Transportation Office (LTO), and have valid personal passenger insurance policies, the LTFRB said.

The P9 fare for the first 4 kilometers and P1.50 for each succeeding kilometer will still be applicable. Jojo Mangahis
