A total of P322.4 million have been distributed to drivers and conductors of public utility vehicles (PUV) as part of the Department of Transportation’s (DOTr) and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board’s (LTFRB) Service Contracting Program.
In a Facebook post, the DOTr said the amount includes the initial payout of P4,000, weekly payout, and one-time incentive given to those who have joined the program.
It said PUV drivers who joined the program last year until April 30, 2021, are entitled to receive a one-time incentive of P25,000, while those who joined the program from May 1 until June 15 will receive P20,000.
“Based on the last accounting by the LTFRB, 12,315 drivers have received the initial payout while 3,006 drivers have received their P25,000 onboarding incentive throughout the country,” the DOTr said.
In addition, it said drivers under the program will receive an additional P7,000 if they log in through the LTFRB Driver mobile application (app) for five days a week.
