Public transport problem

The lockdown caused the loss of jobs that included the workers in the transportation industry particularly the buses and jeepneys. The jeepney is a local design of a small bus that has the entrance and exit at the rear. Now that they are again allowed to ply the roads, the big problem is the capacity that they can carry.

Buses are allowed only 30% of the maximum capacity which would clearly cut their revenue to 30% only. With the other public transport like the jeepneys and taxicabs, the same rule applies. In short, the revenue will be lesser so the income of the driver and the owner would be less as well.
