MANILA, Philippines — Amid skyrocketing fuel prices, at least 135 routes being serviced under Libreng Sakay will gradually no longer see the King of the Road giving out free rides starting mid-June, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board said Tuesday. 

Of that number, 118 transport service corporations and cooperatives halted their operations on June 16, while the remaining 28 will set up shop by the end of the month, according to a consolidated master list sent to reporters. 

"For the buses, Busway will end by July also as well as Commonwealth Route 7 bus from Montalban to Quezon Avenue," LTFRB executive director Tina Cassion told reporters in a text message Tuesday. 

Here's a full list of the routes where free rides will no longer be available, according to the LTFRB:

Jeepney groups have said that with the two oil price hikes in as many weeks, almost one hundred pesos has been added to the daily cost of the 20 liters of fuel that jeepney drivers consume per day, prompting many of them to give up riding and find other ways to support their families.

However, this figure doesn't include traditional public utility jeepneys that did not qualify for the Libreng Sakay under the LTFRB's service contracting program. 

The LTFRB is set to finally decide on the petitions calling for a P5 fare hike by the end of the month.
