Provincial buses operating in point-to-point routes can resume operations, Malacañang said Tuesday, as the Philippines seeks to further reopen the economy dragged down by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The government's inter-agency task force on pandemic response, in a resolution, said "provincial buses in point-to-point routes approved by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) and the local government unit (LGU) of destination, including their stop-over/transit terminals" can resume operations.

For the most part of 2020, Metro Manila and its 12 million people have been largely closed off to provinces to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Restrictions however have been largely eased to make way for economic recovery.
