DOTC launches PWD-friendly point-to-point city buses
Aside from the premium airport bus service, the transportation department also launched a new batch of city buses that will serve the general commuting public better, especially to persons with disabilty.
With a vision to slowly improve transportations services within Metro Manila, the Department of Transportation and Communications introduces new buses for the point-to-point (P2P) bus service that will have a low floor height with its hydraulic kneeling function and a retractable boarding and alighting ramp for PWDs.
Like other P2P buses, the new buses will also have GPS, CCTV and free Wi-Fi onboard. Interestingly, it’s also listed to have a tap-and-go payment scheme, like the Beep card of MRT/LRT, but we still don’t have concrete news regarding the expansion of the said system to city buses.
