All Praises For LTO In Western Mindanao

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / Nov. 12, 2010) – The regional headquarters of the Land Transportation Office in Western Mindanao continues to earn praises and accolades from the public because of its excellent and efficient services.

The International Standards Organization has conferred its ISO certification to the LTO’s Driver’s License Renewal Centers because of its prompt services.

The ISO is an organization that sets standards in many businesses and technologies, including computing and communications.

“We have been really working hard to be able to provide fast and better services. Our dedication to public service is really very important to everybody at the LTO and we shall continue working hard to serve the public,” said lawyer Aminola Abaton, the LTO’s regional chief.

Transportation and Communications Secretary Jose de Jesus recently reappointed Abaton and praised him for his many accomplishments. Abaton was largely credited for his many projects and implementation of various LTO programs.

“It is much better now. The services are very good and fixers are gone. This is the kind of services we should have in other (government) agencies,” said Jeng Fernandez, 34, who renewed her driver’s license on Friday.

Noel Noche, head of the LTO’s Zamboanga City District Office, also cited Abaton’s leadership in the success of their programs and projects that benefited the public.

One of its popular projects is called “Info-Text Service” which allow any person with a cellular phone to inquire whether a vehicle is stolen or not by simply texting its plate number and sending them to 2600. The Info-Text Service also allows a person to inquire about other LTO rules and procedures.

Abaton has tapped female LTO personnel to augment its regular force to implement transportation laws across the region. He also beautified LTO offices in western Mindanao.

“Director Abaton is a very good public servant and his leadership guided us all in our efforts to provide better and efficient services to the public,” he said.

Noche himself was also praised by many for the accomplishments of the Driver’s License Renewal Centers which resulted to the fast processing of licenses, thus, cutting the time that motor vehicle drivers have to wait before they can claim their cards.

The LTO is the agency responsible for improving land transportation services and facilities and implementing various transportation laws, rules, and regulations. (Mindanao Examiner)
