LTFRB orders PUVs to keep list of passengers for contact tracing

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) will require public utility vehicles (PUV) to keep a list of their passengers for contact tracing when mass transportation resume under general community quarantine (GCQ).

During the Laging Handa briefing on Monday, LTFRB chairman Martin Delgra III said that PUV drivers will have to keep a record of their passengers as part of the safety measures amid the threat of the dreaded virus.

He said that all PUVs such as buses, jeepneys, tricycles, taxis and TNVS will be required to record the names and contact details of their passengers as part of the precautionary measures against COVID-19.

“Kailangan po na mayroon silang manifesto ng kanilang pasahero kasama ‘yung mga pangalan [at] contact number… on the part of the bus operator. ‘Yan po ang gagawin ng driver at kundoktor sa doon loob ng pampublikong sasakyan,” Delgra said.

Meanwhile, Delgra also urged passengers to keep a list of the PUVs they take in case they come in close contact with a passenger who tested positive for the dreaded virus. 

“On the part of the passenger, we are requesting and appealing them to na kung pwede na maisulat din ‘yung mga sinasakyan nilang pampublikong sasakyan,” Delgra added.
