The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) and the Land Transportation Office (LTO) will conduct the probe and issue the necessary show cause order to the operator of MSJ Tours bus following an incident involving one of its drivers who violated road transport rules and safety as captured in a dashcam video that was posted on social media.
