Trips of fastcraft vessels plying the Bacolod-Iloilo route have been reduced by half since late last week, Frank Carbon of Weesam Express said Sunday, July 18.
Carbon said there has been a drastic drop in passengers after Iloilo City and Iloilo province were placed under Enhanced Community Quarantine.
The fastcrafts of three companies plying the route used to have two trips a day each for a total of six, he said.
He said the number has dropped to three with Weesam Express down to one trip and OceanJet with two trips a day.
Carbon urged Bacolod and Negros Occidental residents to strictly observe health protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and the elevation of the quarantine status over their areas.*
