THE Department of Transportation (DOTr) partnered with two other petroleum companies— CleanFuel, and Total Philippines— to provide free fuel to bus units participating in the Free Bus Service for Health Workers Program amid the enforcement of the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

"Ito ay malaking tulong para makasiguro tayong tuluy-tuloy ang ating serbisyo upang makatulong sa ating mga health workers. Malaking bagay ho ito sa mga modernong bayani nating nagsasakripisyo para sa ating mga kababayan.
