INFANTA, Quezon - Residents in remote areas of Quezon province can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The Land Transportation Office (LTO) recently announced a major expansion of services in the region, aiming to eliminate the long-standing challenge of traveling vast distances for LTO transactions.

The initiative kicked off on June 4, 2024, with the immediate deployment of LTO E-Patrol services in Infanta, Quezon. This temporary service station, located at the LTO Site in Barangay Pilaway, will serve residents as a precursor to the opening of the permanent LTO Infanta District Office.

"This is a game-changer for residents in Infanta and nearby towns," said LTO Region 4A Director Elmer Decena. "Previously, they had to travel all the way to Lucena or Laguna, which is simply impractical. The E-Patrol will bridge that gap and provide much-needed convenience."

Understanding the crucial role tricycle operators play in remote areas, the LTO will prioritize members of the Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association (TODA) from Infanta and surrounding towns within the "REINA POGI" area (Real, Infanta, General Nakar, and Polillo Group of Islands) for the initial month of E-Patrol operations. This ensures smoother transportation services for residents while the E-Patrol transitions to serving the general public.

The good news doesn't stop there. Director Decena also announced the upcoming opening of several new LTO offices across Quezon. The LTO Alabat Extension Office has already reopened to the public on May 30th, while residents in Candelaria can expect a new LTO Candelaria Extension Office opening in July. These strategically placed offices will significantly reduce travel times for residents in those areas.

While the focus is currently on improving services in remote areas, the future holds even greater promise. Construction of a state-of-the-art LTO Region 4A Regional Office is underway in Malakayat, Lipa City, Batangas. This one-hectare facility, expected to be completed by 2025, will boast ample parking space and modern amenities, serving as a central hub for LTO operations in the region.

This significant improvement in LTO accessibility is a result of collaboration between Quezon 1st District Rep. Mark Enverga, Infanta Vice Mayor L.A. Ruanto, Coun. Mannie America, and the LTO Region 4A. Officials expressed their gratitude to Congressman Enverga for securing the E-Patrol service and commended Vice Mayor Ruanto and Coun. America for prioritizing TODA members and assisting with the E-Patrol launch. This collaborative effort exemplifies a commitment to serving the needs of residents in remote areas.

The deployment of LTO E-Patrol and the upcoming new offices mark a significant step towards making LTO services more accessible and convenient for residents in Quezon province. This initiative will not only reduce travel times but also ease the burden on residents who previously faced long and arduous journeys for essential LTO transactions.
