Alongside Executive Assistant and Bacolod City Traffic Authority (BTAO) head Butch Ebreo and Traffic Management Unit (TMU) head Inspector Roger Ong, Puentevella personally invited the groups after rumors of impending strikes and rallies over the past week. Around 98% of the members were present, and most aired out their grievances, particularly on instances when Land Transportation Office (LTO) Regional Office personnel intruding with the protocols and activities of the Bacolod TMU.

Puentevella, a former Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation said that he will personally send a letter addressed to the National LTO, requesting that the regional office not to intervene with the city’s activities.

"The city (LTO) can take care of our traffic activities; there’s no need for them to interpose," said Puentevella after he heard that some members are complaining that the regional office is charging them more for violations.

The mayor likewise put a rest on the supposed rallies and strikes by the transport groups, saying that it came about due to "lack of proper communication" and that they will continue to meet to completely iron out the problem.

"It’s good to know that they are willing to listen and cooperate and rest assured that I will go down to them for better communication.

There’s always a solution if we take time to sit down and assess the problem." stressed Puentevella.
