The Department of Tourism (DOT) is disappointed with some vans operating via Caticlan and Kalibo.
This is after DOT Officer-in-Charge Tim Ticar received reports that a number of vans on a trip to Kalibo Aiport have malfunctioning air-condition.
Ticar received complaints from tourists and regular passengers.
In line with this, the DOT OIC said, he will look into how their agency can be able to address this issue.
They also have to check if those in question are using yellow or rainbow plates.
Ticar explained that those with yellow plates are under the Land Transportation Office, which they cannot interfere with, while those with rainbow plates are for tourist transport, and are under the DOT.
With this, Ticar added that he will raise this matter to the proper authority to be acted upon, while reminding van operators to adhere to the standards that are required of them.
