THE Pagkakaisa ng mga Samahan ng Tsuper at Operators Nationwide (Piston)
Cebu asked local government units (LGUs) to forego unnecessary fees for jeepney who have resumed operating.
“There should be no more pending fines to pay, swab testing should be free and
we should not be required to undergo another seminar that will cost us too. All
these have different fees,” he said
He assured that drivers will
implement the set minimum health and safety protocols while in transit.
Piston thanked the Cebu City Government for
allowing traditional public utility jeepneys (TPUJs) to ply their original
routes in the city after more than a year of inactivity.
Greg Perez, Piston Cebu
chairman, said the group has long been pushing for the reopening of the TPUJs’
old routes. The issuance of Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella’s Executive Order
131 last May 27 was a positive development.
