By: - 11/05/2019

UMABOT na sa P1.6 bilyon ang naipautang ng Development Bank of the Philippines at Landbank of the Philippines sa mga Transport Service Cooperatives sa ilalim ng Public Utility Vehicle Modernization Program.

At umaabot pa umano sa P4 bilyon ang aplikasyon sa mga bangko na indikasyon umano na suportado ang programa ng Duterte government.

Ang pinakamalaking pautang na naibigay ng DBP ay ang p109 milyong loan ng Diamond Transport Service Cooperative para sa 75 units sa Caraga Region.

Ang Landbank naman ay nakapagbigay ng P106 milyong loan sa PM Jeepney Drivers and Operators Services Inc. para sa 60 unit sa National Capital Region.

 “These eligible corporation/cooperative borrowers availed the banks’ loan program with a scheme of 5-6-7 – 5% equity, 6% interest per annum, payable for 7 years, and with an P80,000 subsidy per Public Utility Jeepney unit from the government,” saad ng pahayag ng LTFRB.

“Together with the Department of Transportation, the local government units, and the private sectors who have expressed strong support to the modernization program since day one, are very thankful to DBP and Landbank because they have enabled our operators and drivers to continually evolve their service. Hand in hand, we will work towards providing a better public land transportation to the riding public,” ani LTFRB chairman Martin Delgra.
