Many Negrenses and Bacoleños continued to suffer from long waits yesterday with the lack of public transportation under the General Community Quarantine.
That is because jeepneys and buses can only carry 50 percent of their passenger capacity to ensure compliance with the COVID-19 physical distancing rule.
The majority of public utility jeepneys in Bacolod City have already put up plastic dividers in their vehicles as a safety measure against the spread of COVID-19, Councilor Dindo Ramos said.
Ramos said he is also filing a resolution asking the National Inter-Agency Task Force to allow at maximum of two passengers on board tricycles and trisikads, instead of just one, provided plastic dividers are placed.*
