LTFRB extends special permits, QR codes for PUVs

·1 min read

THE Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board in Central Visayas (LTFRB 7) has extended the validity of special permits and QR codes for public utility vehicles (PUVs).

Regional Director Eduardo Montealto of LTFRB 7 signed a contract on Friday, June 10, allowing PUV operators to renew their special permits and QR codes until June 20, this year.

As to whether they would still renew the special permits and QR codes after the June 20 expiration period, Montealto said they still have to decide on the matter.

The cost of special permit for every jeepney unit is P170, which can be renewed for free.

Montealto said the special permits and QR codes were given to PUV operators since the start of the lockdown brought about by the Coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic allowing them to ply outside of their assigned routes to accommodate passengers going to their respective hometown during the holiday rush.
