Metro Manila Council approves driver-only car ban in EDSA

The Metro Manila Council just approved the proposed driver-only car ban in EDSA made by the MMDA last year.

In 2017, the MMDA proposed to ban driver-only and/or with 1 passenger private/public cars in EDSA North Avenue – EDSA Magallanes routes from 7 am to 8 pm on weekdays. However, there was no news if it has been approved but recently, the Metro Manila Council composed of mayors has approved a similar proposal but it only applies to driver-only private cars.

See the written proposal from last year below.

    Kalokohan, ningas kugon lang naman ang MMDA. Ano ng nangyari sa motorcycle lane? Yellow lane? Hindi ma-so-solve ang problema sa EDSA kung hindi magbabago ang mindset ng drivers at mga commuters.

    Ang mga pasahero nasa kalsada… ang bus drivers kung saan-saan nagbababa at nagsasakay.

    Ang mga nagtitinda sa bangketa, illegally parked cars, illegal terminals… hindi na mawala. Yan ang totoong problema ng trapiko dito sa manila.

    I dont think that the current public transport system can handle more users. This is a very poorly thought through idea.
