The Sangguniang Panlungsod approved Ordinance No. 1023 Series of 2023 – An ordinance adopting the Fare Matrix System of Motorela Operations in the City of Malaybalay

Due to the fluctuation of gas prices, the Chairman of the Committee on Transportation and Traffic Management, Hon. Niko P. Aldeguer, proposed an ordinance adopting an automatic fare matrix system and pakyaw fare matrix for motorela operations within the City of Malaybalay.

The pandemic and recent events (e.g. war in Ukraine vs Russia) have severely affected the world market and thus caused fluctuation in fuel prices.

A public hearing was conducted by the Malaybalay City Franchising and Regulatory Board (MCFRB) relative to the proposed automatic fare matrix system.

After carefully considering the discussion during the public hearing, the MCFRB resolved to adopt the said fare matrix system.

The fare matrix system had been derived from computing the average number of passengers, fare, gasoline consumption, trips, and maximum daily rounds fewer expenses (e.g. gasoline expenses, motorela rental).

The following table shows the fare matrix system:


Gasoline Price Suggested Fare Senior Citizens/

per Liter (P) Students/PWD

35.00 – 45.00 8.00 6.50

46.00 – 55.00 9.00 7.50

56.00 – 65.00 10.00 8.00

66.00 – 75.00 10.00 8.00

Note: Poblacion to Landing Area – an additional one peso (P 1.00) fare.


Gasoline Per Suggested Fare Suggested Fare

Liter (Price) Poblacion Landing Area

P 35.00 – 45.00 P 48.00 P 72.00

46.00 – 55.00 54.00 81.00

56.00 – 65.00 60.00 90.00

66.00 – 75.00 60.00 90.00

76.00 – 85.00 67.00 100.00

86.00 – 95.00 67.00 100.00

96.00 – 100.00 72.00 108.00

After thorough deliberation during the 57th regular session on August 22, 2023, the said ordinance passed and approved on the third reading. The Hon. City Mayor Jay Warren R. Pabillaran also approved and supported the implementation of the said ordinance. (LGU Malaybalay)
