Suspension of operations[edit]

On February 5, 2015, A Dela Rosa Transit bus with license plate TYM-449 rammed and crushed a silver 2015 Toyota Vios before sandwiching it against another bus on EDSA in the Muñoz district of Quezon City.[1] The driver of the Vios was trapped for a few minutes, but was later extricated by the MMDA and rushed to the hospital.[2] Following the accident, the Land Transportation Franchising Regulatory Board (LFTRB) ordered the preventive suspension of Dela Rosa Transit and ordered all of the company's drivers to undergo drug testing and road safety seminars within 15 days of the announcement. The bus driver involved in the accident fled the scene, but was later arrested and placed under police custody.[3][4] Despite his claims that the brakes on the bus failed, he has been charged with reckless imprudence resulting in multiple injuries and damage to property.[5] The driver has since been fired by Dela Rosa Transit.[6]


Dela Rosa Transit maintains and utilizes UD Nissan Diesel, Golden Dragon, Guilin Daewoo, Hino, Hyundai Aero Queen, Hyundai Universe Space Luxury, and King Long units, with roughly a total number of 300 buses, including those from N. Dela Rosa Liner.
