The Libreng Sakay will extend its hours of service to cater to workers exempted from the enhanced community quarantine during curfew hours.
Mayor Sara Duterte said that this is in response to some of the workers’ questions on how to access a ride past the curfew hours.
“There are employees who are working until past curfew hours, that is why we extended the services of our Libreng Sakay buses,” she said.
From Mondays to Fridays, the Libreng Sakay buses will still be available from 7 p.m. – 12 a.m. following the routes of Toril, Calinan, Lasang, Cabantian and Mandug.
She said this will cater those who are still out during the curfew period, since the mass transportation has been cancelled amid the implementation of an enhanced community quarantine.
