Puerto Princesa hosts 3rd tourist drivers accreditation seminar

The Department of Tourism (DOT) held its third seminar entitled “Tourist Drivers as Tourism Frontliners” on May 17-18, 2017 at Hotel Centro, Puerto Princesa City. This seminar aims to accredit units of vans transporting tourists and guests from the new Puerto Princesa International Airport to their hotels and accommodations.

Elizabeth Viray, Senior Tourism Operation Officer of MIMAROPA’s Accreditation Unit, said that the turn-out of attendance—numbering to at least 400 van drivers—was overwhelmingly more than they expected, especially since it’s already the third time they’re holding the seminar in Puerto Princesa. This, she said, means that the National Government recognizes DOT’s effort as they work together for the regulation of stickers and accreditation. This also shows the good relationship of the government, LGUs and van drivers and operators, she added.

The topics of the seminar included road safety and the role of tour guides and drivers. Upon finishing the seminar, the DOT issues accreditation stickers that will allow van units to operate inside the airport. Without such sticker, a van cannot enter the premises of the International Airport.

The said seminar was a mandate of DOT Regional Director Danilo B. Intong, as per a memorandum issued by the Land Transportation Franchising Regulatory Board. The DOT is open to hold the same seminar in other parts of Palawan if needed.
