0 428

Jordan Mayor Ruben Corpuz said SouthWest Tours Boracay, Inc. is interested in getting a franchise for an Iloilo City-Guimaras route.

The Guimaras politiko made the announcement after calling a probe into the shortage of boats plying the said route.

The Jordan Motorbanca Cooperative manages the boats plying to and fro Iloilo City and the municipality of Jordan.

Corpuz is a member of the cooperative.

But he said he already suggested to increase the number of boats on Mondays, Fridays, and during weekend when there are more tourists.

But Corpuz said the cooperative did not listen to his request.
