CEBU, Philippines — Amidst the rising cost of fuel, Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Junard Chan announced Tuesday that they will be offering free rides to the city’s constituents.

The mayor in his Facebook post said that due to the rising cost of fuel, some of his constituents opted to remain at home and even chose to forego even important matter and that there are public utility vehicles that are forced to stop plying their routes.

“Tungod niana, atong i-deploy ang atong mga Libreng Sakay buses nga mobyahe sa mga main route sa atong dakbayan aron mohatod sa mga pasahero paingon sa ilang mga destinasyon. Pinaagi niining atong gibuhat makatabang kita nga maka-save ang atong mga commuters sa pamasahe ug sa samang higayon di na sila mahadlok nga moadto sa ilang mga lakaw aron sab nga adunay pasahero ang atong mga public utility vehicles,” Chan said.

Chan said that the Libreng Sakay is open for every Oponganon to ride.

“Abli kini nga moserbisyo sa mga Oponganon ug wala kini gipili nga pasakyon. Kinahanglan lang nga dili mag-overloading ang matag bus nga mobyahe. Atangi sa mga kadalanan kining atong Libreng Sakay nga buses,” the mayor further said.

Mark Anthony Bautista, head of the City Information Office, said the city government has five coaster units but for now only three will be used for the Libreng Sakay.

“Ang remaining 2 buses gigamit sa maghatud sa lubong or namatyan nga mo request for assistance nga masakyan,” Bautista added. — GMR (FREEMAN)
