0 511

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) is teaching this bus company a lesson.

The regulatory board has temporarily suspended Joyselle Express Inc. after one of its buses was involved in an accident along southbound EDSA Magallanes last Tuesday, which injured at least 19 individuals.

In a three-page order dated June 21, the LTFRB suspended Joyselle Express Inc.’s bus with plate number TXD 328 for 30 days.

The LTFRB ordered the driver and conductor of the bus to undergo road safety seminar and mandatory drug test.

The operator of Joyselle Express, meanwhile, was ordered to explain in writing within 72 hours why its certificate of public convenience should not be suspended, canceled or revoked.

A Joyselle Express bus rammed into two vehicles after it lost control of its brakes while approaching the waiting shed on Magallanes Avenue at a speed around 50 to 60 kilometers per hour.
