Mas maganda gastusin na lang sa pagbuyout ng private bus lines ang pera na yan at i-kontrol na ng government. Then mag-set ng service levels ang govt then i-bidout ang O&M.

O kaya i-order na agad ng additional trains sa MRT-3 at hindi puro aral sa offer ng MVP group or SanMig group.

O kaya budget para sa isang napakakinis na EDSA, Taft, R10, SLEX Makati-Manila section atbp at isemento na ang C6 (at di puro tapal ng lupa) within the year.

O kaya i-extend na agad ang Lrt 2 to Divisoria. Tama na aral. May sasakay at sasakay diyan. Just do it.

O kaya budget para idemanda/iblacklist ang mga subcontractor ng Manila Water / Maynilad sa super super substandard ng pagtakip sa mga hinuhukay nila. Para matuto na itong mga ito.

Hay. 'Sensiya na mga bro, di ko napigil

Does anyone here know the fines or penalties for the violations?

Single ticketing in Metro Manila starts March 1

Starting tomorrow (March 1), the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and the 17 local government units of Metro Manila will issue a common traffic ticket known as the Uniform Ordinance Violation Receipt (UOVR) in their respective jurisdictions, the first step toward imposing common fines and penalties within the metropolitan area.

MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino said this measure implements the Agency's mandate under its charter to institute a single ticketing system in Metro Manila.

"Transport groups have been asking for single ticketing since 1995. We are grateful for the support and cooperation of DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo and the Metro Manila mayors in finally resolving this matter," Tolentino said.

The UOVR will be launched tomorrow (March 1) at 11 am at the MMDA office in Makati City. Mayors, local traffic bureau chiefs, Land Transportation Office (LTO) officials and leaders of public transport organizations are expected to attend the launch.

Long Overdue. It was conceptualized during GMA administration.

New terminals for buses to be built in Metro Manila

by Zen Hernandez, ABS-CBN News
Posted at 03/05/2012 3:26 PM | Updated as of 03/05/2012 3:26 PM

MANILA, Philippines - Transportation Secretary Mar Roxas said new bus terminals will have to be constructed at the North, South and Eastern parts of Metro Manila, in order to de-congest traffic in the metropolis.

This is in line with Executive Order 67 issued by Malacañang directing the establishment of an Integrated Transportation System.

At present, there are 28,426 public utility buses nationwide. Around 7,736 buses traverse Metro Manila (provincial), on top of the 5,331 city buses that go around NCR.

There are also 85 provincial bus terminals in NCR and 46 in EDSA alone, which explains the daily traffic.

But never constructed and implemented. So still a big thumbs up to this present administration if done.

About time they do some urban planning. They should also assign danger zones for various natural disasters such as areas vulnerable to earthquakes, flooding etc,

Urban planning for Metro Manila has been done for more than a hundred years now, it already has numerous masterplans. It's not about time they did some urban planning, the question, imho, would preferably be about when they will strongfully implement a plan.

We have a lot of bright minds and good plans in PH, but we have a very ineffective and inefficient government system.

Green revival plan for laggard Metro
MMDA, mayors must get act together under WB-backed ‘Greenprint 2030’
By Miko Morelos
Philippine Daily Inquirer
12:38 am | Wednesday, March 7th, 2012
0shareNew 0
When he started working as World Bank country director for the Philippines last month, Motoo Konishi saw the sullied state of the Pasig River—and remembered how a major waterway in his native Tokyo, similarly silted and polluted in the 1960s, was eventually rescued.
“It is possible,” Konishi told his audience that included top Metro Manila officials on Tuesday at the launch of a 20-year bid to put the vibrancy back not just on the Pasig River but on the entire capital of 12 million people.
For now, the task would take much more than cleaning rivers, with Metro Manila consistently ranking for years as one of the worst cities in Southeast Asia and the world in terms of living standards, business-friendliness, infrastructure, pollution, traffic congestion, etc.
Not to mention the fact that the capital has long splintered into 16 cities and one municipality, where “unification” efforts like having a common ticket for traffic violations took almost two decades to negotiate.
Konichi spoke at the launch of “Metro Manila Greenprint 2030,” an ambitious program that will have the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority and the 17 local government units mapping out ways to transform the mostly chaotic, poorly planned capital into a world-class charmer and competitor.
Greenprint will be fueled by a seed fund and technical assistance from the World Bank and the Australian Government, and the international group Cities Alliance, according to MMDA Chair Francis Tolentino.
Speaking to reporters after the program, Tolentino was short on specifics as to what exactly needs to be done, apart from saying that all the LGUs must be involved in the planning and that their future ordinances must be in line with the goals of Greenprint.
He cited Seoul and Tokyo as among the Asian “success stories” worth emulating.
Among the concerns raised in Tuesday’s talks were Metro Manila’s age-old problems—traffic and transportation, flood control, water security, the environmental tragedy that is Manila Bay, and informal settlers.
Among the mayors in attendance were Herbert Bautista of Quezon City and Sherwin Gatchalian of Valenzuela. Also present was Gov. Casimiro Ynares Jr. of Rizal province.
Gatchalian conceded that Metro Manila has become a “borderless organism” and that its residents were no longer aware of territories between cities.
It has become imperative to “manage Metro Manila as a whole (in order) to improve the quality of life here,” the mayor said.
Tolentino spoke of a “physical framework plan” that was made for Metro Manila in 1999, which he said may now need revising due to social, economic and environmental changes in the last 13 years.
The World Bank said the formulation of Greenprint 2030 will be done in two phases:
Phase 1, to be completed in May 2012, will involve “a workshop to raise awareness among key stakeholders in regard to global best practices and approaches to enhance metropolitan competitiveness, livability and sustainability. The vision for the Metro Manila’s future will be forged at this stage.”
‘’Phase 2 will involve the preparation of a strategic spatial strategy for approval by June 2013. The second phase will also require further financial support from the government or other development partners.” With a report from Riza Olchondra

MMDA eyes 'world-class' EDSA

by Henry Omaga-Diaz and Apples Jalandoni | ABS-CBN News | Thursday | Posted at 03/08/2012 1:10 AM | Updated as of 03/08/2012 | 1:10 AM

MANILA, Philippines – The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) on Wednesday expressed plans to develop EDSA into a world-class highway.

During a round-table discussion between the MMDA and ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs, MMDA chair Francis Tolentino revealed plans to make EDSA environment-friendly by August.

“My second pledge before the start of the school year: 900 tree lampposts from Heritage to Balintawak,” Tolentino said.

To ease traffic at the thoroughfare, MMDA plans to build a “skybridge” from E. Rodriguez Ave. in Quezon City to the Sta. Ana racetrack in Makati.

However, Tolentino admitted that a lot of work has to be done before changes can be implemented.

Based on MMDA figures, around 350,000 vehicles pass through EDSA daily, carrying more than 2 million commuters.

The high volume of vehicles was cited as the reason for the frequent accidents along EDSA.

Just last week, a total of 247 vehicular accidents were recorded in Metro Manila by the MMDA.

Curbing accidents

MMDA will also propose that bus companies with a clean accident record be exempted from the number coding scheme as an incentive.

The agency also plans to install light posts along dark stretches of EDSA and modern traffic lights to prevent accidents.

However, MMDA noted that to reduce the number of accidents, drivers must always practice discipline.

“We all know that at the end of the day, safety is really within our control. If you go out, malaki ang responsibilidad mo sa sarili mong buhay at lalo ng malaki ang responsibilidad ng ating mga drivers,” said MMDA spokesperson Tina Velasco.

If they'll put up the needed lampposts, who will maintain these?

The no-accident, no-coding incentive for bus companies seems at this point, a good idea.

Too many people too many cars, too much traffic. If they don't do something to abate the population explosion it will only get worst. And I see little towns, " emulating Manila in their development to cityhood
that said nothing is hopeless, if they're serious enough they can do it.

Kailangan naman talaga pagandahin ang EDSA. It has been looking so drab and dreary. We pass there everyday. Umiinit ang ulo natin sa heavy traffic (among other things), so it would be nice to see a lot of greenery and lights (hopefully not technicolor lights) along EDSA para naman medyo kumonti ang stress.
