DOTR opens transport matters hotlines

March 24, 2020

THE Department of Transportation (DOTr) Emergency Operations Center (EOC) yesterday said it has opened several hotline numbers to assist the public with matters concerning transportation amid the implementation of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in Luzon to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

​"Ang mahigpit pong bilin sa amin ni Secretary Tugade ay sagutin ang mga katanungang pang-transportasyon, lalo na ngayong maraming kumakalat na fake news at mga maling balita sa social media at sa mga text messages ukol dito,” DOTr Undersecretary Artemio U. Tuazon Jr. said.

​For his part, DOTr EOC Head Eymard D. Eje thanked the telecommunications partners, on behalf of the DOTr Secretary, for providing the much-needed telephone lines.

​“Ipinararating po ni Secretary Tugade at ng buong DOTr ang taos-pusong pasasalamat sa Globe at Smart/PLDT para sa maagap na tugon sa aming request upang magkaroon kami ng komunikasyon sa publiko.​The DOTr EOC announced that the hotline numbers are available for calls from Monday to Friday, 7a.m. to 7p.m., and during weekends, Saturday to Sunday from 8a.m. to 12noon. The cellular numbers are open for text messaging 24 hours a day.
