The Alliance of Concerned Transport Operators (ACTO), one of the country's biggest transport groups, endorsed the candidacy of Sen. Francis "Chiz" Escudero for vice-president and promised to deliver substantial votes for him in the May 9 general elections.

ACTO is a major transport group with 400,000 members nationwide. Its members include drivers and operators of jeepney, tricycle, taxi, school bus and UV Express vans.

"Ngayon po, dinedeklara ko sa hanay ng transportasyon, sa bumubuo ng ACTO, na ibibigay natin ang ating boto sa magiging bise-presidente sa darating na Mayo 9--walang iba kundi si Chiz Escudero," said ACTO national president Efren de Luna during the group's meeting Wednesday night in a Quezon City restaurant, which was attended by over 250 transport leaders from Metro Manila.

ACTO also supported Escudero when he first ran for senator in 2007 and sought re-election in 2013.

De Luna assured Escudero that all ACTO members and their families are also behind him in his vice-presidential bid.

Escudero is running as independent under the "Gobyernong may Puso" platforms of rapid and inclusive growth, poverty alleviation, transparency and global competitiveness, alongside presidential candidate Sen. Grace Poe.
