Gov Marcos thumbs down new fare hike

Sep 17, 2018 @ 17:05

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos said she disagrees with the request of transport groups for a new fare hike.

The Ilocos Norte politiko said the public will not be able to handle more price increases amid the rising prices of goods.

“Hindi ba katataas lang ng pasahe nang pumayag ang LTFRB sa provisional jeepney fare hike na P9 mula sa dating P8?” Marcos asked.

But she said she understands the transport sectors concern.

“Bagama’t, nauuna­waan natin ang hinaing ng mga kababayan nating tsuper sa hiling na pagtaas ng pasahe, ngunit, mahirap din na basta payagan na lang ito, marami rin sa ating mga kababayan ang naghi­hikahos sa sobrang mahal ng presyo ng mga bilihin, hindi na rin nila keri ang dagdag-pasahe lalo pa at wala naman silang natatanggap na dagdag sa suweldo,” Marcos said.
