BOHOL LAND TRANSPORTATION CO. vs.NAZARIO S. JUREIDINI G.R. No. 31244 September 23, 1929 FACTS: This is a petition filed by the Bohol Land Transportation Co. praying for the review and reversal of an order issued by the Public Service Commission on November 23, 1928, admitting the application of respondent Nazario S. Jureidini, granting him a certificate of public necessity and convenience to operate regularly fourteen trucks in the Province of Bohol where the petitioner and appellant is a common carrier, and cancelling the authority given to the Bohol Land Transportation Co. in its certificate of public convenience and utility, to make special trips. ISSUE: Whether or not tha acts of the PSC are valid. HELD: No. xxx x x x [W]e are of opinion and so hold: (1) That before giving a certificate of public necessity and convenience to a transportation company or common land carrier, there being another in existence with the proper certificate, the latter must be given an opportunity to improve its service, should it be deficient or adequate; (2) that before a total or partial revocation of a certificate of public necessity and convenience, the party thereby affected must be notified and heared; (3) that the mere possession of a public mail contract is not a sufficient indication of the convenience and necessity of a new transportation line, and hence, will not sustain the issuance of a certificate of public necessity and convenience.
