Angara wants law on fare discounts for students

By: Inquirer.net June 08,2018 - 09:25 PM

THERE is a need for Congress to pass a legislation that will institutionalize the 20 percent student fare discount, Senator Sonny Angara said on Friday.

“If we want to provide long-term assistance to our students, we need to come up with a law to institutionalize the regulatory policy, which can always be subject to change,” the senator said in a statement.

According to Angara, there is always a possibility that the student fare discount may not be enforced effectively since it is just based on a circular issued by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB).

“Ang kailangan natin ay batas para masiguro natin na ang 20-percent discount para sa mga mag-aaral ay mananatili kahit sino pa ang mga nakaupo sa DOTr (Department of Transportation) at LTFRB,” the senator pointed out.
