The DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION AND COMMUNICATION and its attached agency, LAND TRANSPORTATION FRANCHISING and REGULATORY BOARD has initiated the Airport Bus Service project with the goal of augmenting the current public transport services in our three (3) airport terminals in Metro Manila. This is the direct response to the public clamor for more efficient hassle free and commuter-friendly transport services option for those going to and from the three (3) airport terminals specially now with increasing number of passengers being experience every year.
The DOTC through Department Order 2015-011 and LTFRB through Memorandum Circulars 2015-22 and 2015-23 have detailed the terms and conditions for the Airport Bus Service franchise to be awarded through an open public bidding. The bidding invitation was announced through publication last July 2, 2015. The Airport Bus Service provides for among others several provisions that are considered a total paradigm shift from the way public transport is currently being done.
