THE CEBU South Bus Terminal (CSBT) management, which is under the Cebu provincial government, is expecting up to 40,000 passengers this weekend who will travel to vote for the May 13 midterm elections. CSBT Chief Jonathan F. Tumulak, in a statement, said they have sought the help of local government units (LGUs) in southern Cebu through the deployment of government-issued vehicles. He said the 300 public utility buses operating at the terminal could not possibly accommodate all commuters, similar to other major occasions like the recent Holy Week holiday, wherein LGU vehicles were also used as supplementary service. Mr. Tumulak said his office will help the Commission on Elections (Comelec) in monitoring and ensuring that the government vehicles will not be used to boost a politician’s interests. During the Holy Week, buses deployed by the LGUs were first inspected by CSBT personnel to make sure these were free of campaign materials.
