MMDA stops dry run of Edsa provincial bus ban

account_balanceMetro Manila chat_bubble_outline0 Comments visibility

Thr Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) stopped the dry run of the provincial bus ban on EDSA after a “not successful” first day.

MMDA spokesperson Celine Pialago announced this on Thursday, the second day of the pilot test of its newest traffic policy that should have seen provincial buses ending their trip at interim terminals either in Valenzuela City, Parañaque City or Santa Rosa, Laguna.

She stressed, however, that the MMDA would continue to strictly enforce the decades-old yellow lane policy for city buses on Edsa.

Only around 5 percent of the 2,736 affected provincial buses joined the first day of the dry run, which pushed through on Wednesday despite an injunction issued by the Quezon City Regional Trial Court.

Based on the MMDA’s monitoring, 136 provincial buses ended their trips in the interim terminals. But since participation was voluntary, some of them pulled out later in the day due to the lack of passengers.
