Piston Cebu asks LGUs ‘leeway’ to returning PUJ drivers

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.
