CEBU CITY, Philippines — The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board in Central Visayas (LTFRB-7) will provide 100 special permits to public utility jeepneys (PUJs) that will ply the South Road Properties (SRP) where the buses from the Cebu South Bus Terminal (CSBT) will be transferred on Sunday.

This is to accommodate passengers who will be traveling to and from the southern part of Cebu that may be affected with the CSBT’s temporary closure.
