VALLACAR Transit Inc. (VTI), operator of about 2,000 Ceres Liner buses in Negros Occidental and other parts of the country, is gearing for a “zero accident” with the launching of its “Oplan Iwas Aksidente” on Sunday.

VTI will also conduct a medical consultation for its drivers and conductors and a lecture on road safety by a Land Transportation Office (LTO) representative.

VTI chairman Ricardo B. Yanson said the safety of the riding public, their drivers and conductors is part of the main thrust of its company in line with the program of the Land Transportation Franchising Regulatory Board (LTFRB).

“We are conscious about safety and, more so about preventing road accidents, thus we launched this program,” he said.

He added that they also complied with LTFRB Resolution No. 2014-01 that mandated the strict observance nationwide of the 15-year age limit of buses and mini-buses even on units with road worthiness and MVIS certificates.

Yanson said all the 15-year-old buses and mini buses were pulled out and they are in the process of completing the documents of their brand new fleets. (CNC/TDE)
