Personnel of LTFRB-10 made a surprise inspection on taxis along Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC) Friday, March 13, 2020, and warned the drivers not to refuse passengers without valid reason. The agency was acting on a grievance posted in social media by a nurse mentioning that some taxis and e-buses are refusing them out of fear of contracting COVID-19 because they are health workers in the said hospital.

Here’s the Facebook post.

Moreover, LTFRB-10 is encouraging the public to report any similar incident and other form of abuse and/or unruly behavior they may encounter from PUV drivers by getting the plate number, RX number or body number of the unit the erring drivers are driving; or by simply taking photo of the unit (make sure important details of the unit are shown in the photo) and send it to their Facebook page (see below) so they can act on it.
