Employees from the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) and Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) served hot meal to stranded passengers on Sunday, 30 December 2018.
PPA employees served lugaw or porridge to some 2,500 passengers at the Lucena Port.
LTFRB employees served the same meal and food packs to more than 500 passengers stranded at Cubao Bus Terminal in Quezon City.
Tropical Depression “Usman” prompted transportation authorities to suspend ship and bus trips this week.
The food distribution to the stranded travelers was in line with the Department of Transportation’s Oplan Biyaheng Ayos: Pasko 2018.
