At least five new and modern transportation units have begun plying various routes in this city Monday, the Balangay Transport Service Cooperative (BALTRANSCO) said.

In a statement, the BALTRANSCO said the five Class II modern transportation units were launched after its ceremonial blessing attended by the cooperative members and top officials of the Land Transportation Office-Caraga Region (LTO-13) and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board-13.

“The modern units will provide services to the intra-city routes in Butuan City, particularly routes 7, 12, and 10,” BALTRANSCO chair Juanito Ubas said.

He added that the operation of the modern units of transportation is part of the Public Utility Vehicle Modernization Program (PUVMP) of the government.

“Two of the new units will be plying route 7, the other two in route 10, and one in route 12,” Ubas said.

Meanwhile, LTO-13 officer-in-charge operations chief Urbano Maglines Jr. lauded the local coop for its valuable contribution to the modernization of mass transportation in the city.

“These modern vehicles will provide comfort among our residents here,” Maglines said.

He said the PUVMP aims to provide the riding public with efficient, affordable, and comfortable means of transportation. (PNA)
