The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) will be launching its Public Transport Online Processing System (PTOPS) in the National Capital Region starting June 16.
In a statement on Wednesday, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said that the system will allow online transactions with the LTFRB, making its services faster and accessible for all. The new system, however, excludes the publication and hearing of cases.
“In partnership with PISOPAY.COM, the PTOPS not only aims to make transactions faster and more convenient, but also aims to ensure that physical distancing will be continuously observed, as a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” it said.
Using the system, a user can create an account, select the type of transaction, and schedule an appointment online with the LTFRB.
The department said that apart from curbing the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019, the PTOPS will also prevent corrupt practices since human intervention will be lessen.
“Kailangan na po nating masanay na ito na ang magiging normal simula ngayon. We are making our services accessible at the comfort of your homes and we have to adapt to this new reality. In this way, we lower the risk of possible virus transmission,” LTFRB chairman Martin Delgra said.
The DOTr said that the system will be on pilot testing and consultation with stakeholders from June 1 to 15.
