With the enhanced community quarantine underway in Bacolod City, the city government has tapped Ceres bus liner to transport frontliners. Bacolod City Councilor Cindy Rojas said Ceres’ parent company, Vallacar Transit Incorporated, has provided 21 buses on top of the four already utilized by frontliners at the city’s check-up points.
The city official said bus service will be available from 6:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. with frontliners and other essential workers allowed to ride for free but must show identification. Buses can also be used by non-frontliners but they must pay P10 and are required to show their home quarantine pass.
Three buses will be designated at each of the city’s seven bus stops, with the point of origin being the San Sebastian Cathedral and Police Station 1.
Under an enhanced community quarantine, all public utility vehicles in the city are suspended until April 14. However, local barangays are allowed to utilize their own service vehicles in order to assist constituents in acquiring essential needs during the quarantine period./DGB, WDJ
