MANILA - Another bus company was seen using G.V. Florida's terminal in Earnshaw Street in Sampaloc, Manila, leading to speculations that the company only repainted its buses and changed its name.

A sign bearing the name Transport Pro Services Inc. was seen posted in G.V. Florida's terminal in Manila. The bus company has also started offering trips from Manila to Ilocos.

Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) Chief Winston Ginez explained that Transport Pro is a legitimate and registered bus operator that has been in operation for years. It also has its own franchise.

He said that the company wrote a letter to his office, asking permission to use G.V. Florida's terminal while it is still suspended.

He added, however, that they will still look at the speculations that G.V. Florida is operating under a new name.

Meanwhile, G.V. Florida did not file a motion for reconsideration to appeal the 6-month suspension it received following the deadly accident in Bontoc last February.

The bus company is suspended until September 19, 2014. -- report from Zhander Cayabyab, dzMM
