The Land Transportation has issued memorandum setting the deadline of the last submission of the application of Pantawid Pasada card on August 31, 2011.

Zamboanga City District Office Head Noel M. Noche said he has received an order from LTO-9 Director Aminola P. Abaton  who was instructed by the LTO central office through Transportation and Communication Secretary Mar Roxas  to implement the new  deadline on the submission of the application by the beneficiaries.

Meanwhile, Pagadian City District Office Emmanuel P. Barretto Sr. disclosed that in Zamboanga del  Sur, PUJs are not affected by economic crunch because  basic commodities are sold at low price and  jeepneys drivers earned not only from passenger fare but also from cargo transporting.

Since the  launching of the fuel subsidy last June, only six PUJ owners applied for it in Zamboanga del Sur, Barretto said.

He said his office has informed all jeepney terminals and with the help of the media, an information dissemination has been done but only few applied for it.
Barretto also said that his revenue collection for the first  semester of this year reached P 16,260,739 compared last year’s only P 15,337,939.19.

On the other hand, Johan S. Macaombos of the LTO Buug Extension Office said that PUJs are very few in his area and only a handful applied for the Pantawid Pasada card fuel subsidy. — Allen Abastillas
