No PUV special permit application for Sinulog sa Carmen yet

THE Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board-Central Visayas (LTFRB 7) is awaiting application for special permits for public utility vehicles (PUV) that will be used to ferry tourists to and from Carmen town for the Sinulog sa Carmen celebration.

LTFRB 7 Director Eduardo Montealto told SunStar Cebu in a text message that special permits apply to PUVs that have to ferry passengers outside of their authorized and usual routes.

"We are waiting for their applications," Montealto said.

He added that tourist buses, by nature of their operation, are authorized to ferry passengers and tourists plying in and out of northern Cebu, particularly to municipality of Carmen. (EHP)
