The Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) has already been divided into 2 distinct departments. The Department of Transportation (DOTr) and Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT). This was done under the Duterte administration in response to providing a more specific service to the Filipino people with 2 distinct problems – information and communication technology and transportation.
