Dad pushes for city wide PUV registration

BAGUIO CITY – Not Radio Frequency Identification(RFID), but City Councilor Nicasio Aliping is proposing a resolution for the eventual local registration of all Public Utility Vehicles(PUV) coming in and out of the city.

Dubbed ‘Registration and Stickering System’ for all public utility vehicles citywide aimed at eventually recording all existing PUV’s plying the Baguio route.
Aliping’s idea is to have a record and inventory of all PUV’s doing business in the City of Baguio.

At present, we do not have a record of how many public utility vehicles granted franchises by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), Aliping said.

With the resolution, PUV’s will have to register and secure a clearance first with the city government before registering with the LTFRB.
It requires all PUV’s including buses, jeepneys, taxis, vans for hire and school service to secure a clearance with the city for purposes of registration, extension, substitution and transfer thru the Traffic and Transportation Management Committee (TTMC), the ordinance states.

After registration, the mentioned PUV’s will be issued stickers at the expense of the owner or operator which will be placed at the vehicles windshield.
The ordinance, once approved will also apply to all PUV’s plying the route Baguio City, whether inter or intra franchises validly issued by the LTFRB for registration, extension, dropping, substitution and transfer of franchise.

The Office of the City Mayor thru the TTMC will be the sole agency in issuing said clearances and stickers.

Public hearing and consultation for the said ordinance will be conducted soon.
