The fare adjustments will take place on Thursday, or a day after the LTFRB has publicly informed the masses about these changes.

The increase in the jeepney fare will only be applicable in Metro Manila, Central Luzon and Calabarzon.

Meanwhile, the P40 base fare in taxis will be implemented in Metro Manila, Cebu, Panay and in other areas where the Philippine National Taxi Operators Association is present.
