MTRCB to inspect buses, bus terminals before Holy Week break

April 7, 2017 - 9:53 AM

The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) will conduct an inspection and information drive on passenger buses and various bus terminals on Monday and Tuesday, April 10 and 11.

MTRCB board members will tour several bus terminals along the EDSA-Cubao area on Monday and in the Manila area on Tuesday. 

The activity will be conducted before the Holy Week break when hundreds of thousands of passengers are expected to travel to the provinces for their Lenten vacation. 

The activity aims to increase public awareness and to ensure that buses only exhibited materials within the General Audience (“G”) or Parental Guidance (“PG”) film classification so that children on board will not be exposed to materials inappropriate for their age.

The inspection is meant to check the bus operators’ compliance to the rules and regulations of the board, and for the bus commuters to be informed of their right to responsible, age-appropriate, and value-based media while travelling in buses and awaiting departure from bus terminal stations.

On Monday morning, the MTRCB team will visit the following: Araneta Center terminal station at 7AM, Baliwag Transit at 9AM, Genesis Transport at 9:40AM, and Jam Liner at 10:30AM.

The Tuesday schedule is as follows: Farinas Transit Company at 8:30AM, GV Florida Transport at 10AM, Dalin Liner at 11:30AM, and Victory Liner at 12:30PM.
