It’s his way to prevent more people from getting stranded.

Mayor Len-Len Oreta has suspended afternoon classes in Malabon for Monday, Feb. 6, 2017 in light of an ongoing transport strike by jeepney and UV Express operators and drivers.

The politiko found it best to keep students at home or getting rides early instead of running the risk of leaving the school kids without a way home late in the afternoon.

The jeepney operators are protesting against a plan of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board to phase out old, dilapidated units while imposing higher standards on new jeeps.
