(NAR) VOL. 6 NO. 2 / APRIL - JUNE 1995

[ LTFRB MEMORANDUM CIRCULAR NO. 95-005, June 07, 1995 ]


Complaints have been received about the alleged operation of tourist buses as regular buses plying on fixed routes. This practice if not curtailed unduly competes with legitimate passenger bus operators with definite route descriptions.

Tourist buses shall limit their services exclusively to tourists, domestic or local and foreign, and shall not cater to commuters on a pick-up drop basis nor shall said services be operated as a regular bus catering to a general clientele.

In view hereof, henceforth, all tourists bus operators are hereby required to clearly identify the type of service of their units by displaying a permanent painted sign, "TOURIST BUS" on the vehicle's lower right front windshield, in bold letters which can be read from a distance of 100 meters. The letters shall be 5" in height, 3" in width, ½ inch in thickness, and ½ inch in space between letters.

This Memorandum Circular shall take effect fifteen (15) days after the filing of three (3) copies hereof with the U.P. Law Center, in accordance with Presidential Memorandum Circular No. 11, dated October 9, 1992.

Adopted: 07 June 1995
