Don’t charge additional fares once bus ban starts, operators urged

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority is appealing to city bus operators not to charge additional fares once the provincial bus ban on Edsa is fully implemented.

“There will be no additional fares because the trips of provincial buses will be cut short. Provincial buses will be reduced, at the same time city buses are willing to shoulder the difference,” MMDA Edsa traffic chief Edison “Bong” Nebrija said.

Nebrija pointed out that fares of city buses were expected to be costlier than provincial buses as their routes would be extended to the interim terminals in Valenzuela City and Sta. Rosa in Laguna once the closure of the provincial bus terminals on Edsa was carried out.

“For instance, if a bus with routes from Bicol to Cubao charges P1,000, they will now have a P900 fare, as its trip will end in Sta. Rosa. Thus we appeal to the city buses to only impose a P100 fare to their passengers,” Nebrija said.

The MMDA is awaiting special permits from the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board for the implementation of the fare scheme.

The MMDA is in talks with provincial and city bus operators, as well as commuters groups, to gather their views on the provincial bus ban.

The MMDA is not setting a definite date for the closure of provincial bus terminals as it still needs to finalize the guidelines for its implementation with the Department of Transportation and the LTFRB.

“We will be presenting our plan on the closure of bus terminals to the Metro Manila mayors once we receive the guidelines from the DOTr and LTFRB,” Nebrija said.

The MMDA earlier said it planned to close all 47 provincial bus terminals along Edsa by June.
