Buses banned on Edsa in August

By Rio N. Araja | Jul. 22, 2013 at 12:01am
Buses coming from Cavite and Batangas will no longer be allowed to enter the Epifanio de los Santos Avenue starting next month, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority said on Sunday.

Milagros Silvestre, chief of the MMDA Organized Bus Route, said a terminal for buses coming from Cavite and Batangas towns will be opened on August 6 in a 1.4 hectare lot in Parañaque City.

“We have conducted fingerprinting drivers of Cavite and Batangas drivers, and we are ready for the opening of our bus terminal at the Uniwide Coastal mall on Roxas Boulevard on August 6,” Silvestre said.

The terminal system would keep provincial buses from Edsa and ease the volume of traffic on a major artery in the heart of Metro Manila. An estimated 7,000 provincial buses run the Edsa route everyday.

It was not immediately known if a similar terminal will be built for buses coming from the northern provinces.

MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino said setting up terminals in the outskirts of Metro Manila was expected to ease traffic flow in the road arteries that connect the major towns and cities.

A transport group, the 1-United Transport Koalisyon, said it will support the program if the centralized bus terminal would lead to better transport system for commuters.
