"Bakit nga ba binibigyan natin ng oras ang libreng pamasahe? Dahil hinihikayat nating pumasok ng maaga sa paaralan ang mga estudyante kapalit nyan ay libreng pamasahe," Transport Secretary Arthur Tugado said in a tweet. 


Aside from those mentioned above, students will also get to enjoy free terminal fees when flying in any airport under the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, the DOTr told reporters.

Terminal fees in ports run by the Philippine Ports Authority are also waived for students, the transport department said.
