DOTr Undersecretary for Road Transport and Infrastructure Mark Steven C. Pastor had this to say during the conference, “Ang aming layunin ay ipakita ang mga programa ng DOTr Road Sector, LTO, at LTFRB na inilunsad upang mas maintindihan ng publiko at mabigyan ng pagkakataon ang mga ibang offices na ipakita ang mga planong magpapatuloy sa susunod na administrasyon. Nais naming ipaalam sa ating mga kababayan na ito ang mga programang inyong aabangan.”
