LTO Region 4B – MIMAROPA Region 

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) Region 4B (MIMAROPA Region) is one of the thirteen (13) regional divisions of the agency. Like the LTO Central Office, the LTO Region 4B regional office was created to oversee the different LTO agencies under its jurisdiction. In turn, the LTO agencies carry out the implementation of the projects and the enforcement of the LTO rules, regulations, and policies in the entire region. The LTO MIMAROPA regional office, along with the LTO agencies, was created to bring the agency closer to the people, making it easier both for the public and for the agency to maintain a safe, efficient, convenient, and economical land transport service for the residents of the region.

As an administrative region known as the Southwestern Tagalog region, MIMAROPA not only serves as the “food basket” of the region. It is also well known for being the country’s “eco-tourism hub,” with ots age-old traditions and colorful festivals, natural attractions, and the warmest welcome from the people. Its regional center is located in Calapan City, in Oriental Mindoro, where the LTO also set up its MIMAROPA regional office. From there, the agency ensures that the public can enjoy excellent service and access programs and activities geared towards better economic, industrial and social development within the region’s territorial jurisdiction.
