THE METROPOLITAN Manila Development Authority (MMDA) admitted yesterday that there were no public consultations held before implementing the dry run on the provincial bus ban along EDSA. The dry run was stopped after two weeks. However, MMDA EDSA Special Traffic and Transport Zone chief Edison Nebrija said they are not altogether scrapping the plan. “What we are trying to eliminate dito (here) are the bus terminals….There are 47 provincial bus terminals along the main artery of the metropolis….We believe that the terminals are magnets for other activities that create the congestion on EDSA,” said Mr. Nebrija during the committee hearing on transportation at the House of Representatives on Monday, May 20. He added that MMDA is eyeing solutions such as the deployment of point-to-point buses (P2P) to serve passengers from the designated hubs in Sta. Rosa Laguna, Valenzuela City, and the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange. — Vince Angelo C. Ferreras
