A transport group in Cagayan de Oro is set to join the “Pinagkaisang Samahan ng mga Tsuper at Operators Nationwide (PISTON)” in its nationwide strike on Monday, February 27, 2017 in response to the planned phase-out of 15-year old public utility jeepneys (PUJs) next year.

The Solidarity of Transport in Region 10 (STAREX) which is aligned with PISTON is asking the government to reconsider the phasing out of old PUJs in addition to its demand to rollback the prices of oil. SOURCE

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board had earlier said the planned phase-out of old jeepneys is aimed at modernizing public transport and making these environment-friendly.
