Proposal approved for LTFRB Bacolod satellite office transfer
As part of the commitment to serve the public better, the Bacolod City Council approved the resolution by Councilor Carl Lopez requesting the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) to find a new location for their satellite office . Lopez said that it is necessary to find a new location for the new office to help jeepney operators renew their franchises conveniently. Currently, operators have to travel to Iloilo for renewal. The councilor also mentioned that the satellite office in Bacolod will operate on a daily basis, based on a discussion with LTFRB chairman Martin Delgra III.
