LANDBANK delivers P569-M fuel subsidy for PUV drivers

Jeepney drivers have successfully claimed their Pantawid Pasada cash cards loaded with P6,500 fuel subsidy at LANDBANK Cubao Branch in Quezon City on 18 March 2022, as part of the National Government’s support intervention to PUV drivers amid the rising fuel prices. The driver-beneficiaries can use the cash cards to purchase fuel at participating fuel stations nationwide.
About 87,500 jeepney drivers nationwide have already received fuel subsidy worth
P6,500 each, as Land Bank of the Philippines (LANDBANK) ramps up support to
public utility vehicle (PUV) drivers challenged by the sudden rise in fuel prices.

LANDBANK, in close coordination with the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and
the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), has credited
fuel subsidies totaling P569 million for existing Pantawid Pasada cash cardholders
under the Fuel Subsidy Program as of 17 March 2022. More than 377,000 PUV
driver-beneficiaries are eligible to receive the subsidy under the Program.
“LANDBANK is one with the National Government in providing immediate support
interventions to PUV drivers to weather the impact of the fuel price surge. We are
working closely with the DOTr and LTFRB to complete the distribution of the fuel
subsidy to all beneficiaries nationwide at the soonest time possible,” said LANDBANK
President and CEO Cecilia C. Borromeo.
Apart from jeepney drivers, the Fuel Subsidy Program beneficiaries also include
drivers of UV express units, minibuses, buses, shuttle services, taxis, tricycles, and
other full-time ride-hailing and delivery services nationwide.
Beneficiaries without Pantawid Pasada cash cards will be provided cash cards at
designated LANDBANK branches as identified by the LTFRB.
The Pantawid Pasada cash cards can be used to purchase fuel at participating fuel
stations nationwide.
LANDBANK continues to partner with national government agencies to ensure the
timely, safe and efficient delivery of financial interventions to eligible beneficiaries,
as part of the Bank’s commitment to serving the nation.
