Leo Tereso Magno together with LTFRB Davao regional director Nonito Llanos III, Dasutransco Chairperson Evelyn Garciano, Dasutransco members, and government officials of the Province of Davao del Sur and its municipalities, creating another history in the public transportation scene in the province.

Alam ninyo ang transportation ang sukatan ng kalagayan ng isang lugar. A country will never run right without the correct transportation system, kaya I am very proud to attend events like this na makikitang nagtutulungan ang pribadong sector – and Dasutransco at ang gobyerno,” he added.

In his message, RD Don Llanos stated his thanks to Dasutransco for their steadfast dedication to PUVMP. “Dako akong pasalamat sa Dasutransco because you made history today under PUVMP,” RD Llanos said.

PUVMP is a program aimed at providing a well-maintained, modern, comfortable, and safe public transport system in the country. The program aims to improve the system of public transport not only for riders but also for drivers and operators so that they can have an adequate and dignified livelihood.
