The model presented by Gov. Yap has dividers/barriers with handles between the riders and passengers to contain the spread of COVID-19.

    Bakit need pa ng barrier?..qng talsik lng ng laway ang inaalala nila, hndi b pwede n face shield n lng ang gamitin??..then magdala n lng ng pangdis-infect pra before sumakay sa motor, dis-infect-an muna ung partner if galing sa ibang lugar kc nman magkasama po sa bahay tapos pagdating sa motor may barrier??..kung concern nila ang hawaan mas concern nman cguro ng bawat isa na hndi makakuha ng virus dahil buhay ng family nila ang nakasalalay.
