Transport Groups Call For Temporary Pass Of Colorum Vehicles Amid ECQ

COLORUM – Transport groups in the Philippines called on the government to provide a temporary pass for colorum vehicles.

Amid the enhanced community quarantine, several industries, including transport were severely affected. However, for transport groups, it may be high time for the government to rethink their position on their intensified campaign.

According to the Land Transportation Office (LTO), health and capacity protocols are commonly violated within “colorum” operations. Due to LTO’s intensified campaign against these vehicles, more than 178 operations were apprehended since January 2021.

But, according to groups, the operations against colorums come at a time where the public has limited access to public transportation. Furthermore, according to an interview with Philstar, Primo Morillo of the “Passenger Forum” said:

Because commuters can’t find rides, some private companies are taking the initiative to find ways to get their employees to their place of work and this, actually, helps the economy. We’re still studying the policy because it’s also right to remind colorum vehicles that operate without franchises that what they’re doing is contrary to policy
