Yanson bus company ready for transport boost
The country’s biggest bus operator said it was ready to meet the government’s call to ease the lack of public transportation. “We are committed to serve the people amid the raging coronavirus pandemic,” Leo Rey Yanson, chair of the bus conglomerate known as the Yanson Group of Companies, said in a statement on Wednesday. The group operates 4,800 buses under the bus brands Ceres Liner, Rural Transit of Mindanao, Bachelor Express, Ceres Transport, Southern Star Bus, Mindanao Star Bus, Sugbo Transit and Gold Star Bus. The National Economic and Development Authority earlier pointed to the need to ramp up public transportation as the government takes steps to reopen the economy. —MIGUEL R. CAMUS
