The Land Transportation Office/LTO Aklan has given an explanation to the Aklan Provincial Council regarding a complaint on the operation of 'colorum' L300 vans with Caticlan-Kalibo route and vice versa.
This followed after Federation of Aklan Integrated Transport, inc. or FAITI President Felix ‘Nonoy’ Sefres raised a protest to the Provincial Council.
According to Sefres this greatly affects the livelihood of jeepney drivers with Kalibo, Caticlan, Ibajay, and Tangalan route because of the colorum Vans’ constant competition.
However the LTO explained that they often conduct a check point on the National Highway, but they haven’t in a moment seen or caught any of the alleged colorum vans with plate numbers that are on the list submitted by Sefres.
Because of this the Aklan Provincial Council itself suggested by passing a resolution requesting the Land Transportation and Franchising Regulatory Board or LTFRB Regional Office 6 to conduct a stern inspection and monitoring regarding this issue.
