City council to propose local public transportation route plan

City Architect Marvin V. Alegria has presented to Koronadal City Mayor Atty. Eliordo U. Ogena the proposed Local Public Transport Route Plan (LPTRP). This is in line with the Department of the Interior and Local Government and Department of Transportation (DILG-DOTr) Joint Memorandum Circular issued by the Land Transportation and Franchising Regulatory Board (LTFRB) in which there would be a designated area for public transport vehicles.

The agency is currently reviewing its effects on public transport, especially the tricycle operators and drivers who will be adversely affected by the said route plan.

Meanwhile, Mayor Ogena has suggested to conduct a public hearing for directly affected sectors including the media for extensive information dissemination.
