Bauko Mayor Abraham Akilit said he wants the town’s local public transport plan to be completed immediately.
The Mountain Province politiko said adding more routes for public utility vehicles around Bauko will boost the town’s tourism industry.
Akilit also said the Land Transportation Franchising Regulatory Board (LTFRB) needs the approved local public transport route plan so it can grant certificates of public convenience to a tourist transport cooperative.
“Tourism is the way to go for our municipality and we want the natural beauty of the environment to be preserved and protected,” he said.
“We want our municipality to be known as an ecotourism destination by preserving the natural state of our environment with the least destruction,” Akilit added.
