BARMM starts administration of public transport franchises

COTABATO CITY – The Bangsamoro Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (BLTFRB) started Monday the administration of public transport franchises in the region.

Minister Paisalin Tago of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) – Ministry of Transportation and Communication said the assumption of responsibilities in managing the franchises of the public transport sector came after the turnover of responsibilities from LTFRB-12 (Soccsksargen) on May 12.

“This is not just a turnover of documents but also a transfer of responsibility and commitment by the LTFRB,” Tago said in a statement Monday.

The transfer was under Board Resolution No. 025 which affirms the transfer of all assets, digital records, franchises, special permits, provisional authority, and other corresponding documents for routes under BARMM from the LTFRB-12.

LTFRB chair Teofilo Guadiz III led the turnover of the tasks and digital copies of franchise documents for routes under BARMM’s jurisdiction to Tago.

Tago said that while BLTFRB is now working independently, it will continue to collaborate and cooperate with its counterpart in other parts of Mindanao. (PNA)
