MANILA, Philippines – Modern jeepneys will resume operations at Araneta City in Cubao starting on Saturday, February 11, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) announced.

The LTFRB and administration of the Araneta City Bus Terminal conducted a joint inspection the following day on Friday, February 10, and determined that limited operations of modern jeepneys could begin again on Saturday.

Although the general area suffered damages, the LTFRB determined that the bus terminal itself was still functional. As such, no temporary terminals would be set up.

LTFRB also hoped that the terminal would become “fully operational” once again by Sunday, February 12. The Araneta City bus terminal regularly serves 260 modern jeepneys.

Tinitiyak ng LTFRB na hindi po maantala ang operasyon ng terminal sa kabila ng nangyari para maging tuloy tuloy ang paghatid serbisyo sa ating mga kababayan sa kanilang nais na patutunguhan,”  said LTFRB Chairman Teofilo Guadiz III.

(The LTFRB assures that operations in the terminal won’t be affected by what happened, so that we can continue to serve our countrymen and let them reach their destinations.) –
