LTO Region 5 – Bicol Region 

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) Region 5, otherwise known as Bicol Region, is just one of the thirteen (13) regional divisions of the agency. Like the LTO Central Office, the LTO Region 5 regional office was created to manage and oversee the different LTO agencies within its territorial jurisdiction. In turn, these LTO agencies in Region 5 carry out the projects and enforce the LTO rules, regulations, and policies in the entire region. The LTO Bicol Region regional office, along with its 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 and visitors in the area.

The Bicol Region is located in the southeast peninsula of Luzon, the largest island in the northern portion of the Philippine archipelago. It is well-known not only for the almost perfectly conical Mount Mayon and its panoramic views from Legazpi, Albay, Bicol, but also for its mountains, caves and cliffs, white-sand beaches, and coral reefs. It oozes of countryside charm with its  historic routes and coconut-rich regional cuisine, making paradise for lovers of spicy food and the great outdoors for a good dose of rewarding adventures. It’s regional center in Legazpi City houses numerous business establishments and government offices which includes the LTO. From there, the agency ensures that the public can enjoy excellent public service with programs and activities geared towards better economic, industrial, and social development within the region.

What is LTO Region 5? 

Bicol Region, officially designated as Region 5, is an administrative region in the Philippines.  It is home to six (6) provinces, four in the Bicol Peninsula (the southeastern end of Luzon), namely, Albay, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, and Sorsogon, and two off the shore: Catanduanes and Masbate. These provinces house different LTO agencies within its jurisdiction and these agencies are what is collectively known as LTO Region 5 (LTO Bicol Region). 

The regional seat of power is in Legazpi City, the “City of Fun and Adventure” which is also the capital city of the province of Albay. Because of this, the LTO also set up its LTO Bicol Region regional office in the same city, which makes for excellent traffic.
