LTO Region 10 – Northern Mindanao Region 

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) Region 10, also known as the LTO Northern Mindanao Region, is one of the regional divisions of the LTO in the Philippines. Like the Central Office, this regional office also manages and oversees the LTO agencies in the cities and municipalities within the territorial jurisdiction of Region 10. The LTO branch agencies within the region, on the other hand, carry out the projects and enforce the LTO rules and regulations in the cities and municipalities within each geographical area of responsibility (GAOR). The LTO Northern Mindanao regional office, along with its LTO agencies, ensures that the Secretariat and its services are accessible, making it easier for both the public and the agency to work together towards a safer, more efficient, more convenient, and more affordable land transport service in Northern Mindanao.

Northern Mindanao is the peaceful, politically stable administrative division in the northern part of the Philippines’ most exotic and resource rich island of Mindanao. It is a progressive region by itself, characterized by large tracts of land that are mainly used for the agriculture industry. The region itself is one of the key players in agriculture, and is a major producer of rice, corn, sugar, coffee, rubber, pineapple, tomato, flowers, cassava, and other fruits and vegetables in the country. It houses many beautiful sceneries, too, which keeps it attractive to local and foreign tourists as well as local government offices in the area.

What is LTO Region 10? 

The Northern Mindanao Region, officially designated as Region 10, is an administrative region in the northern part of the island of Mindanao. It lies in the north-central part of the Mindanao island and and the island-province of Camiguin. It is home to five provinces: Bukidnon, Camiguin, Misamis Occidental, Misamis Oriental, and Lanao del Norte, and  two cities, Cagayan de Oro and Iligan, classified as highly urbanized. These provinces and cities house various LTO agencies within its jurisdiction and it is these LTO agencies that makes up what is collectively known as LTO Region 10 (LTO Northern Mindanao Region). 

The regional center of Northern Mindanao is Cagayan de Oro City—the city known as the “City of Golden Friendship” and the “Gateway of Northern Mindanao.” It also serves as the regional center and business hub in these parts, making it easier for the LTO to bring its core programs and services closer to the over 5 million people in the region.
