He may be well-off now, but he knows this struggle.

Actor turned Quezon City Rep. Alfred Vargas proudly shared the fame and victory for the new Republic Act 11314, or the law providing a 20 percent discount for undergraduate students across all modes of transportation.

The law was signed by President Rodrigo Duterte and published recently.

“I feel for the parents who make the ends meet in order to send their kids to school. Fare hike is also viewed as one of the factors for the growing number of out-of-school youths,” Vargas said, adding that the law will be a big relief for them.

Help has come their way.
