“Palihog na muadto kita sa tama nga ahensya. Ang ahensya nga adtoan would be the HPBS office, which is located at Door 7, Magsaysay Park. Dili mo maulaw nga muadto didto, mangutana. Magpakabana, be informed sa mga programa, of course, naa man pod tay mga social media platforms,” Baloro said as the call is directed primarily at those to get affected by the High Priority Bus System.

On those who have submitted their applications, he said they must expect to be visited in their homes for verification and must answer calls from verifiers.
