A temporary bus terminal will be put up in Nueva Vizcaya for Manila-bound passengers.

“This is just a temporary area for our bus terminal while the franchise application of the Vizcaya Liner bus for Nueva Vizcaya-Manila route is being processed by the LTFRB,” Padilla said.

The identification of a temporary bus terminal came up during a recent consultation by provincial, transport sector and LTFRB officials to address the alleged discrimination of Manila-bound passengers in the province by several bus operators in Cagayan Valley.

LTFRB regional director Nasrudin Talipasan vowed to ask  the management of Florida Bus,Victory Liner and Five Star Bus to assign their two buses each to cater to Novo Vizcayano passengers.
