A List of the 49 Jeepney Routes to Resume on July 3

Some 6,000 jeepneys will finally be allowed to go back on the road starting July 3.

For the past three months or so, jeepney drivers have been staying at home because quarantine guidelines disallowed traditional jeepneys from operating. To cope with the crisis, some drivers have resorted to asking for food and money on the streets just to put food in their stomachs, while some became temporary tricycle drivers. While there were also others who were lucky enough to be employed by a delivery service through a program in Quezon City, these alternative income sources are still not enough to feed their families throughout the quarantine.

Good thing, after months of struggle, jeepney drivers can now breathe a little sigh of relief as the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has finally allowed the “Hari ng Kalsada” to return to the roads on July 3, Friday.

The LTFRB has initially approved 49 jeepney routes for the resumption of operations on Friday, July. It has allowed around 6,000 jeepney units to take to the streets and ferry passengers once again. (A List of Provinces and Cities Under the Different Quarantine Schemes Until July 15)

These jeepney units, deemed “roadworthy” and have valid insurance policies, will be given specific QR codes in place of the special permits that are needed to be secured before operating. The QR codes will then be displayed on the jeep to ensure that units on the road are all approved by LTFRB.

The LTFRB ensures the public that they have told drivers and operators that health protocols must be observed: wearing of mask and gloves, 50% capacity to ensure physical distancing, and barriers between passengers and the driver. The board is also looking into providing contact forms for passengers to make contact tracing easier if the need arises.
