Muntinlupa LGU deploys shuttle service for commuters
From The Manila Times:
LED by Mayor Jaime Fresnedi, the local government of Muntinlupa has mobilized shuttle services to ferry stranded commuters along the city’s National Road due to the ban on public transport during the general community quarantine (GCQ).
The mayor inspected the city buses with City Administrator Engr. Allan Cachuela and Muntinlupa Traffic Management Bureau chief Danidon Nolasco.
Two city buses and one coaster servicing route from Tunasan to Alabang (National Road) and vice versa ferry commuters from 5 a.m. to 12 noon and 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. with “no mask, no entry” policy and physical distancing strictly implemented in the shuttle services.
Recently, the local government also mobilized 28 HatidSerbisyo fleets (11 flexi-trucks, 11 e-jeepneys, and six e-tricycles servicing provincial road (Baybayin)) to help frontliners and Authorized Persons Outside of Residence (APOR).
Under GCQ, the Department of Transportation implemented two phases for the resumption of operation of public transportation.
For the first phase until June 21, public utility vehicles including trains, bus augmentation units, taxis, ride-hailing cars, shuttle services, point-to-point (P2P) buses, and bicycles are allowed to operate at a limited capacity.
Modern PUVs and UV Express are allowed to operate for the second phase from June 22 to 30 with limited passenger capacity.
Muntinlupa Mayor Jaime Fresnedi has approved Executive Order No. 15 s.2020 allowing the resumption of tricycle operations in the city during the modified enhanced community quarantine provided they follow sanitary measures. An odd-even scheme has been enforced and tricycles can only operate from 5 a.m. to 12 midnight.
