The Vallacar Transit Inc., operator of Ceres Liner, said there was no cancellation of trips from its terminals in northern Negros Occidental to Bacolod City on Friday, March 11.
This, after claims on social media spread that supporters of presidential bet and Vice President Leni Robredo could not attend the official’s grand rally in Bacolod as there were no buses that would ferry them to the province’s capital city.
VTI clarified what it called the “malicious” statement, stressing that: “We are here to serve the riding public with utmost safety and comfort even during the COVID-19 pandemic and there is no reason for us now to cancel our trips that the travel restrictions have lowered.”
VTI stressed they are operating with a limited number of units due to the health restrictions but in spite of this, they are trying their best that no passenger gets left behind, the statement said.
“We cannot cater to the whims of groups that would leave our routes in a vacuum,” the management pointed out, adding it is against the policy of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board.
“We are appealing to the riding public to be wary and not believe everything they read on social media,” VTI said.*
