In a report by PhilStar, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III announced that bus drivers and conductors will receive a fixed salary starting Saturday. The salary will not be lower than the minimum wage in their respective regions and are entitled to night shift differential, service incentive leave, 13th-month pay, holiday, overtime, and premium pays. Drivers should also receive performance incentives based on revenue, ridership, safety, specific conditions of routes and other relevant parameters.

The new compensation scheme is expected to discourage drivers from lingering for a long time in various stops and from driving recklessly just to get more passengers.

The LTFRB will revoke or cancel the franchise of bus companies who do not comply with the wage order.
