LTO Maasin City Office Location and Contact Information

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) Maasin City refers to the only LTO office in Maasin City in Southern Leyte: the LTO Maasin District Office (DO). Like the other LTO district offices, the LTO Maasin branch office was also opened with the intention of offering fast, convenient, and affordable LTO services to the people of the Maasin city. The branch office also helps the agency keep the local and visiting drivers, car owners, and operators in line while they are in the city or within its geographical area of responsibility (GAOR). After all, with the limited number of people to support, the LTO office has more opportunities to make its presence felt and enforce its rules and regulations more strictly. Plus, this means that they have more time and manpower to watch over the roads, the land transport service providers, and the entirety of the local land transport sector to ensure the safety of both drivers and pedestrians on the road.  

Maasin City may not be your usual tourist destination, but as one of the oldest cities in Southern Leyte, Maasin City has established itself as a major religious pilgrimage hub, attracting locals and tourists with its rustic beauty, laid-back charm, and bucolic beauty as a host to immaculate waterfalls, stunning sunsets, verdant forests, caves, and mangrove plantations. It gets its fair share of visitors which makes it a great location for both business and government offices.
