LTFRB chairperson Teofilo Guadiz emphasized that this is temporary as the board continues to discuss the permanent ₱5 fare hike petition of transport groups due to fluctuating fuel prices. With that, a new fare matrix will not be issued.

In a Facebook post, the LTFRB wrote, “Nakasalalay sa naturang pagdinig ang desisyon kung magkano ang itataas ng pamasahe sa mga pampublikong sasakyan at kung maipatutupad ba ito sa buong bansa o mga partikular na rehiyon lamang.”

The temporary increase is expected to help reduce the effects of the rising fuel prices.
