MANILA, Philippines  — After months of shutdown, traditional jeepneys will be back on Metro Manila roads tomorrow.

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has approved the partial resumption of operations of public utility jeepneys (PUJs) in select routes in the National Capital Region (NCR).

A total of 6,002 jeepneys for 49 routes have been given the green light to resume operations.

Under LTFRB Memorandum Circular 2020-026, traditional PUJs will be allowed on roads during the general community quarantine (GCQ) in Metro Manila.

They will be given corresponding QR codes that will be displayed on their units to serve as special permits for their operations.

Traditional jeepneys deemed “roadworthy” will be allowed to resume operations.

Drivers and operators will still have to comply with safety measures, such as checking of temperature, wearing of masks and gloves and operating at a limited 50 percent capacity to ensure physical distancing.

Drivers are encouraged to put up a fare dropbox to limit contact transactions with passengers.

Passengers will also have to fill out passenger contact forms for contact tracing purposes and should wear masks at all times.

The existing fare of P9 for the first four kilometers and P1.50 per succeeding kilometer will be applied to all units.

The LTFRB had earlier opened other transport modes, such as UV Express units and buses for public use as the country opens up the economy following the strict lockdown imposed in March.
