But this thing may come to an end after the House of Representative approved on final reading the bill that seeks to stop the collection of fees from passengers for the use of sanitary facilities located in terminals, stations, stops, and rest areas.

The late Mountain Province Representative Maximo Dalog was the author of House Bill 725 that aims to ensure the safety and comfort of the riding public by prohibiting the collection of fees from the passengers using comfort rooms in the bus terminals or stations, as well as rest areas.

Dalog said, under the Code on Sanitation, there is a need to provide for an adequate number of rest areas for passengers of private and public conveyances plying the highways to cater to the comfort and personal convenience and needs of travelers.

He added, the maintenance of these comfort rooms and services facilities is part of the services for the human care of common carriers.
