Businesswoman Olivia V. Yanson sees better prospects for the public transportation sector as the government eases up COVID-19 mobility restrictions.
Yanson said that putting the key cities of the country under Alert Levels 3 and 2 is a good indication that the government is easing people’s mobility to travel for work or leisure to spur economic activities.
“Mobility directly translates into a bigger demand for public transport. This is a big relief to the transport industry,” Yanson also said during the annual stockholders meeting of GoldStar Bus Transit on February 7.
During the annual meeting of GBTI, Olivia V. Yanson, Leo Rey Yanson, Ginnette Y. Dumancas, Atty. Collin Derk Y. Isidto, Hernan B. Omecillo and Danny O. Lorenton were re-elected as members of the board, a press statement from the GBTI said.
Stockholders Roy V. Yanson and Ricardo V. Yanson Jr. were absent despite due notices sent to them, it added.
Leo Rey V. Yanson said the company is committed to providing the riding public with the most reliable means of public transportation amid the challenges of the pandemic.
A Bacolod City court, in an October 2021 decision, granted Olivia the mandate to oversee and administer the estate of her late husband Ricardo Yanson, the statement added.*
