Provincial Bus Operators Association of the Philippines (PBOAP) president Alex Yague said the proposed fine is not commensurate to a "minor offense" like out of line operations. "We wrote a letter to LTFRB Chairman (Winston) Ginez, saying it is arbitrary and oppressive," Yague told reporters after a hearing conducted by the House committee on transportation headed by Catanduanes Rep.
The gravity of the offense should be considered by the LTFRB, and I'm sure they will study whether the P1-million fine is commensurate to a minor offense like out-of-line operations," Yague said. Ginez, in an earlier hearing conducted by the House committee on Metro Manila development disclosed the move to impose higher penalties on illegal buses was a concoction of the LTFRB and the Land Transportation Office to ease traffic on major thoroughfares in Metro Manila. Once the memorandum order is approved by the Department of Transportation and Communications, the fine for apprehended colorum buses will increase from the current P6,000 to P1 million aside from a three-month impoundment for the vehicle. Ginez also asked the lawmakers to institutionalize the bigger fines and penalties so that they may become more permanent. PBOAP, at a meeting with the LTFRB chief Tuesday, asked for "consideration" regarding the million-peso fine. "We're asking for consideration. Yung nakamatay nga ng tao P20,000 lang binabayaran (Those with cases of fatal accidents only pay P20,000)," Yague pointed out. During the same interview, Yague said they requested the LTFRB to "rationalize" franchises first so as to determine which buses are out of line. The PBOAP official explained that bus routes were more direct in the past because there were lesser roads. But the construction of new highways brought about new routes wherein buses could be declared out of line, he said.

Alex Yague, president of the Alliance of Bus Associations of the Philippines, warned that the policy could lead to a transportation crisis.
He said 90 percent of the 2,700 buses plying Metro Manila routes would have to be replaced and the refleeting would cost about $300 million since a brand new air-conditioned bus costs between P5 million and P6 million.
Yague claimed the transport sector was caught flat-footed when the LTFRB started implementing the circular to replace all 15-year-old buses.Only provincial bus firms can use second-hand units.
"We want the LTFRB to revoke the circular or to at least hold it in abeyance," said Yague.

There has been deterioration in the quality of buses over a period of time, despite various operators and the main reason being that the fares are regulated stated Alex Yague, President, Provincial Bus Operators Association of the Philippines.

Alex Yague, convenor of the newly-organized Alyansa sa Ikauunlad ng Metro at Provincial Buses (AIMPB), said that the action of the bus organizations does not seek to sympathize with disgruntled jeepney organizations but to dramatize the own concerns of the passenger bus sector.
In a meeting yesterday, the Provincial Bus Operators Association of the Philippines (PBOAP), Southern Luzon Bus Operators Association (SOLUBOA), Metro Manila Bus Association (MMBOA), Inter-City Bus Association (INTERBOA), North Manila Bus Organization (NMBOG) and the Integrated Metro Bus Operators Association (IMBOA) agreed to stage a one-day bus holiday to ask the government to be more effective in addressing concerns like their fare hike petition, increasing cost of fuel, expensive spare parts, and harassment by traffic enforcers.
For the first time, provincial bus operators will join their Metro Manila counterparts in a protest action.Yague, is PBOAP president, noted that provincial bus operators were by nature conservative and have perennially avoided mass actions.
He said that for the first time, provincial bus operators are getting involved to express disgust over the inaction and lack of sincerity of government transport officials to their plight.
However, Yague stressed that the bus holiday when member-buses nationwide will not ply their routes will be peaceful with no mass action on the street and the public adequately informed of the holiday to minimize inconvenience.
"We will make the necessary announcement on the exact date of the bus holiday," he said, adding "We know the public will understand our plight."
Yague explained, for instance, that in their fare hike petition the government was giving them the run-around, arbitrarily postponing the hearings and asking for all sorts of unnecessary data just to delay the process.
"Despite our many meetings with government officials, we have not really talk about substance," he noted.
Yague also lamented the unequal treatment be given to provincial and Metro Manila bus operators over the diesel price discount.He also noted that despite several announcements on discounted spare parts, these items are still to be made available.
