24-hour EDSA Busway free bus rides next month

Heads up commuters!

In a social media post, the Department of Transportation said it is stretching the implementation of the 24/7 EDSA Busway free ride program from December 1 to 31 from the initially announced December 15 to 31.

This is in line with the directive issued by DOTr Secretary Jaime Bautista to the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board.

The LTFRB will soon issue a board resolution for this to make it an official directive to operators who are part of the Service Contracting Program, the department noted.


DOTr made the move in anticipation of the volume of passengers this Christmas season as malls in Metro Manila implement extended operating hours from 11 AM to 11 PM.

Ang inisyatibong ito ng DOTr at LTFRB ay paraan upang siguruhin na may masasakyan ang lahat ng ating mga pasahero beyond the usual operating hours sa EDSA Busway. Bukod sa hindi na nila kailangang isipin ang pamasahe, makasisiguro rin sila na mabilis ang kanilang magiging pagbyahe, Bautista said.

Through the InterAgency Council for Traffic, the department also assures 24/7 security operations.

Pangunahing konsiderasyon natin ay ang kaligtasan ng ating mga pasahero. Bago pa simulan ang 24/7 operations, paghahandaan na ito ng ating traffic enforcers mula sa I-ACT upang tiyaking magiging matiwasay ang pagsakay at pagbaba ng bawat komyuter sa EDSA Busway, lalo na ngayon na inaasahan nating mas tataas ang ridership ngayong buwan ng Disyembre, DOTr Undersecretary for Road Transport and Infrastructure Mark Pastor said.

What do you think about this?
