Facebook user Lovely Rivera posted about her experience last May 19, as she was traveling back to Manila from Daet with her friends. They used DLTB BUS CO. in Daet, Camarines Norte.
The bus company informed them that they were fully booked for May 19 until May 21. However, Rivera and her friends said that they are willing to be chance passengers just to get home because they have work the next day.
A bus arrived at around 8:30 pm, and they asked once more if they would be allowed to board the bus. And while they were begging, the staff let a girl wearing a short dress get on the bus.
One of Lovely’s friends kindly asked about it to the conductor. And he allegedly replied “ang pinapasakay lang kasi namin yung mga naka pek-pek shorts”.
Though they found it a bit offensive they chose to ignore it. And when they were finally allowed to board the bus they were told that they had to stand.
The group requested for a small bench to sit on. Rivera claims that the conductor said“kung ayaw niyong tumayo humiga kayong lima sa sahig, tapos hihigaan ko kayo”. And then the driver added“yung isa dito sa tabi ko, at yung isa dito” pointing towards his lap.
Due to the incident, they decided to just get off the bus and they were able to take photos of the said driver and conductor

May 19, 2019, we were in Daet, Camarines Norte DLTB BUS CO pabalik ng Manila. We were then told by the staffs na fully booked na sila from may 19, 20 & 21 or mag chance passenger nalang daw kami. And because we were so eager to go home that night kasi may mga work pa kami kinabukasan at wala kaming kakilala sa Daet, nag chance passenger nalang kami.
Nag try kaming makiusap na pasakayin kami kahit center seat lang, ilang bus na ang dumaan kaso hindi parin kami isinakay, dahil sa sobrang dami naming chance passenger, then came this bus na bibyahe ng 8:30PM, and again nakiusap ulit kami dahil nga kailangan na talaga naming unuwi.
Habang nakiki usap yung kami, napansin namin na may babaeng naka dress ng maiksi na walang ticket pero pinasakay at binigyan pa ng upuan, nag react yung kasama ko ng pabiro at sinabing ‘ay kuya bakit si miss beautiful pinaupo kahit walang ticket” ngumisi lang yung kondoktor at ang sabi niya “ang pinapasakay lang kasi namin yung mga naka pek-pek shorts” at first alam ko nang foul yung sinabi niyang yun pero hindi na namin pinansin dahil sa kagustuhan naming makasakay. Then finally, sinabihan kami “yung limang dayo sakay na!”
Dali-dali naman kaming umakyat ng bus and long behold wala naman pala kaming upuan sa center seat, tatayo daw kami hanggang Manila so sinabi namin na hindi namin yun, kaya nakiusap kami na kahit lagyan nalang kami ng maliit na bangkito sa gitna makasakay lang kami. Ang sabi ng kondoktor “hindi, kung ayaw niyong tumayo humiga kayong lima sa sahig, tapos hihigaan ko kayo” sumabat naman yung driver at sabi “yung isa dito sa tabi ko, at yung isa dito” tapos tinuturo niya yung lap niya!
Sa sobrang humiliation at degradation na sinapit namin I managed to say “excuse me kuya kapal naman ng mukha niyo! Bababa nalang kami!” bumaba nalang kami ng bus. Nung bumaba kami ng bus nag sabi pa yung driver ng ba-bye tapos nagtawanan sila ng kondoktor at isa pang lalake na kasama nila, habang isinasara nila yung pinto ng bus na manage ko pang kunan ng litrato yung driver at nag pose pa sabay sara ng pinto.
Manong driver at kamasa mo, ang kakapal ho ng mukha niyo! Nakita niyong puro kami babae at first time naming makarating ng Daet, tapos ganyan pa ang ginawa niyo?
Ok lang sana kung sinabi ninyo na hindi niyo kami gustong tulungan kaso nambastos pa kayo wala ba kayong mga konsensya? Sana lang hindi yan mangyari sa mga anak niyo o kapatid na babae, but you’ll surely reap what you saw!
If it happens na mga tourists foreigners ang naging pasahero nila tatratuhin ba ninyo ng ganyan? Or dahil alam niyong mga turista kami na galing lang din sa probinsya kaya akala niyo pwede niyo na kaming bastusin?
Hindi ako pala post ng mga ganyan kaso hindi ko naman pwedeng palagpasin nalang ang kabastusan ninyo!
#DLTBBUSCO I want to inform that you have a rude and pervert staffs like them. Sorry but if I kept myself silent, they will do that again and again to a lot more passengers then eventually ruin your reputation.
#LTFRB may ganyan pong nangyari sa DLTB BUS CO. Daet, Camarines Norte. We hope that you don’t tolerate those kind of drivers. “
Rivera then called the attention of the said bus company and LTFRB to address the issue.
