List Of Most Dangerous Bus Companies In Metro Manila

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board has put together lists of shame for the most dangerous bus companies in Metro Manila. The lists are based on number of deaths, number of injuries and property damage.

“If they do not improve their operations to become safer, we will cancel their franchises,” LTFRB board member Manuel Iway said in an interview.

The list is based on all public utility buses in Metro Manila and is over an 18 month period from 2010 up to the first half of 2011.

Lists of the 10 most dangerous bus operators in Metro Manila:

1. Admiral Transport
2. Nova Auto Transport

4. Gassat Express
5. Joyselle Express
6. Philippine Corinthian Liner

Iway said that the agency was also drafting rules that would make it mandatory for drivers and conductors of public utility vehicle to receive fixed salaries instead of earning on a commission basis.

“With the current system, many drivers are often exhausted or lack sleep because they are forced to work long hours,” Iway said, adding, “This puts the safety of passengers in jeopardy.”
