According to a report published on, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) will make the formal announcement about it this afternoon.

LTFRB board member Ariel Inton, however, told the news provider in a phone interview that the rollback is only provisional, which means that P40 would still appear on the taxi meter but passengers would have to pay P10 less in their actual fare.

Taxi drivers who would violate the order which takes effect on Monday, March 9, will be apprehended, Inton reportedly said.
