Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 26) — Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista ordered the closure of Dimple Star Transport's bus terminal in Cubao on Monday.

This comes almost a week after one of the company's buses crashed in Occidental Mindoro, leaving 19 dead and 21 injured.

The local government said the company also lacked business permits and proper bus terminals.

Dimple Star said passengers with tickets will get refunds.


The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) on March 21 issued a preventive suspension order on 10 units of Dimple Star.

Upon inspection of some units, LTFRB Board member Aileen Lizada said some tires of Dimple Star buses were nearly worn out.
