As authorities sought to further reopen the economy following a slump due to the COVID-19 pandemic, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and his cabinet have approved the return of provincial buses in point-to-point routes.

The Cabinet, which met Monday, allowed “provincial buses in point-to-point routes approved by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) and the local government unit of destination, including their stop-over/transit terminals,” to resume operations, said the inter-agency task force against COVID-19.

“Point-to-point provincial buses shall be allowed unhampered passage through the different LGUs en route to the LGU of destination,” the task force said in a statement.

Authorities in March suspended all modes of public transport. Recently, Duterte’s Cabinet eased some transport restrictions, in time with the opening of the economy that months of lockdown dragged into recession.
