Free rides for students in Minglanilla

POLICE in Minglanilla town in southern Cebu vowed to continue to offer free rides to students until the end of the school year 2022-2023 with the implementation of full face-to-face classes in the town.

Maj. Arieza Otida, chief of Minglanilla’s local police force, said they started offering the free rides on Nov. 2, 2022 and they aim to continue the program until the end of the school year.

She said this is their way of helping the students reach their schools or homes, noting that the implementation of full face-to-face classes in public schools is expected to burden some parents who need to spend for the transportation of their children.

Otida said they have been roving around some areas in the town and providing some students a ride to at least lessen the parents’ burden. (BBT / LMY)
