The “No Vaccination, No Ride” policy for public transportation is meant to avoid complete shutdown according to the Department of transportation (DOTr).

DOTr added that such shutdown may occur if more and more public transport personnel test positive for covid19.

“We are doing everything we can to maintain and keep our public transport operations safe and running. It will be a much heavy burden for commuters if we experience a repeat of public transport closures, “We would also wish to ensure the public that the implementation of the said policy will be both tolerant and firm,”

DOTr also added that this policy does not violate Republic act 11525 which states that vax cards shall not be used as an additional mandatory requirement for educational, employment, and other goverment transaction purposes.

“Access to public transportation is not among those enumerated in the prohibition. The Administrative Code prevails, which mandates DOTr to provide safe transportation services to the general public.”

Fortunately, for those who own a motorcycle or a scooter, they won’t be having mobility problems if ever it is implemented, especially if you are still not yet vaccinated due to personal and medical reasons.
