The two-day transport strike last Monday and Tuesday could have been prevented if there were avenues for dialogue and exchange of facts between affected sectors and proponents of the public utility vehicle (PUV) modernization program, according to House Committee on Transportation Chairman Rep. Cesar V. Sarmiento. President Rodrigo Duterte declared that PUV modernization will be implemented starting January 1, 2018. Other lawmakers who were present during the meeting were Reps. Edgar R. Erice, Johnny Ty Pimentel, Rodel M. Batocabe, Carlos Isagani T. Zarate, Emmi A. de Jesus, Ron P. Salo, Harry L. Roque, Jr., Arlene D. Brosas, Carlo V. Lopez, Gavini C. Pancho and Teodoro G. Montoro. Meanwhile, the Executive Department was represented by officials from DoTR, MMDA, LTFRB, LTO, DBP, LandBank, Office of Transport Cooperatives, PNP Highway Patrol Group. Transport groups such as PISTON, FEJODAP, ACTO, L-TOP, ALTODAP and PASANG-MASDA were also in attendance. / FG/PC
