MANILA, Philippines – More than 250 vehicles illegally plying the routes of Metro Manila have been apprehended by the Southern Police District (SPD) since it implemented its anti-colurum campaign.

The SPD is enforcing this new operation along with the forces of the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB).

In its overnight operation, another colorum vehicle got apprehended in Pasay City while two others were caught in Muntinlupa City.

Authorities intensified its anti-colorum campaign this October after members of the “AUV Tirador Gang” got arrested in Parañaque City.

That gang reportedly used colorum vans to rob unsuspecting pasengers. – from a report by Dexter Ganibe, dzMM
