• Q3 What action can I expect after reporting the incident to LTFRB? Initially, LTFRB will verify your report, thereafter succeeding actions will be determined depending on the nature of violation. Please take note however that there are cases when we need your cooperation by attending hearing/s in the office particularly when LTFRB needs your official testimony (ex. rude drivers, overcharging, etc.) or when the report is not readily verifiable by LTFRB alone.

With regard to complaints where LTFRB can carry out the investigation even without your assistance (ex. dilapidated units, no taxi details, no meter, etc) you can be assured that the report will be acted upon accordingly.
If LTFRB, upon investigation, has proven that violations against the franchise agreement have been committed the franchise holder may be asked to pay fine, have his franchise suspended or cancelled completely depending on the gravity of the violation.

• Q4 If I refuse to attend the hearing what will happen to my complaint?
If your complaint requires hearing and you refuse to attend we can only inform and ask the operator for explanation regarding your complaint considering that we cannot charge the driver or operator without a verified complaint or by denying the former of due process.

• Q5 If my complaint against a public utility driver is proven true, will he be stripped off his license to drive?
The authority of LTFRB is limited to issues covered by the granting of Certificate of Public Convenience (CPC) or franchise; issuance and revocation of driver’s license is within the mandate of the Land Transportation Office (LTO), hence, verified complaints against erring drivers received by LTFRB is forwarded to LTO with recommendation for revocation of license.
