BCPO issues LT jeeps advisory
by Harley Palangchao

The Baguio City Police Office (BCPO) is reminding all operators and drivers of La Trinidad-bound public utility jeepneys (PUJs) that it is enforcing a city resolution banning all La Trinidad jeepneys to pass through Buhagan (formerly Bokawkan) Road and use of Shuntug Street as their staging and unloading area.

BCPO director S/Supt. Agripino Javier has furnished this paper a copy of City Resolution 285, s. 2009 which was recently approved by mayor Reinaldo Bautista Jr. The resolution directs the BCPO to ban all La Trinidad jeepneys from using Buhagan Road.

To recall, Aurelio Placido, president of the Pico-Puguis-Motorpool-Longlong Jeepney Operators and Drivers Association (PPMLJODA) wrote a letter dated July 17, inquiring from the Traffic Management Branch of the BCPO regarding the indiscriminate apprehension of some of their members plying the Buhagan Road for deviation of route violation.

The letter was furnished to city councilor Rocky Thomas Balisong, chair of the city council committee on public utilities, transportation, and traffic legislation, who later introduced a resolution directing the BCPO to enforce an existing resolution related to the issue at hand.

The committee stated that City Resolution 087, s. 2007 repealed or recalled all resolutions which granted La Trinidad jeepneys to pass through Buhagan Road and park at Shuntug Street. The resolution was then forwarded to the City Mayor’s Office for approval.

Since then, traffic enforcers were directed to implement the resolution and apprehend La Trinidad jeepney drivers using the Buhagan Road and using Shuntug Street as parking area.

The committee report further stated that to avoid displacing the La Trinidad PUJs, Bautista issued an order prohibiting all northbound jeepneys plying the La Trinidad Road from using any area in Baguio City as their staging and unloading areas and directing them instead to use the Slaughter compound.

The resolution was passed in line with the city’s effort to ease up and address traffic congestion and air pollution problems in the city.
