LTFRB to Hear Fare Hike Proposed by Cebu Transport Groups


CEBU CITY, Cebu, Philippines - Fifty-year-old Elisio Gako has been driving a public utility jeepney in Cebu for the past 20 years, making both ends meet for his sickly wife and five young children.In over two decades of plying the Guadalupe-Carbon PUJ route, Gako said it seems that he's feeling the pinch particularly acutely this year as he sees himself bringing home only an average of P100 daily due to the high cost of fuel and rising cost of basic goods."I don't know how my family can survive with my earnings," said the gauntly-framed Gako, who also suffers from pulmonary infection.Two transport groups here, the Cebu Integrated Transport Services Cooperative (Citrasco), one of the largest transport group in Central Visayas, and the militant Nagkahiusang Drayber-Operator Alang sa Repormra (Andar) might as well be taking the cudgels for Gako and thousands of other jeepney drivers in Cebu in filing similar petitions seeking a P1.50 increase in public utility jeepney (PUJ) fares, from P6.50 to P8.00 Citrasco Chairman Ryan Benjamin Yu, who also sits as head of the Cebu Confederation of Transport Operators and Drivers Association Inc. (CCTODI), the umbrella organization of transport groups in Cebu, said rising fuel prices and other expenses have forced operators in Cebu to ask for said P8 minimum fare.
