Muntinlupa deploys shuttle service for commuters
To help out many commuters left stranded by the ban on public transport during the general community quarantine, the local government of Muntinlupa deploys shuttle services to ferry them along the city’s National Road.
Mayor Jaime Fresnedi inspected city buses to be mobilized on Tuesday together with City Administrator Engr. Allan Cachuela and Muntinlupa Traffic Management Bureau chief Danidon Nolasco.
Two city buses and one coaster servicing route from Tunasan to Alabang (National Road) and vice versa will ferry commuters from 5:00 AM to 12:00 NN and 1:00 PM to 9:00 PM. A "no mask, no entry" policy and physical distancing will be strictly implemented in the shuttle services.
Recently, the local government also mobilized 28 Hatid Serbisyo fleets (11 flexi-trucks, 11 e-jeepneys, and six e-tricycles servicing provincial road (Baybayin)) to help frontliners and Authorized Persons Outside of Residence (APOR).
Under the general community quarantine, the Department of Transportation implemented two phases for the resumption of operation of the different modes of public transportation.
For the first phase from June to 21, public utility vehicles including trains, bus augmentation units, taxis, ride-hailing cars, shuttle services, point-to-point (P2P) buses, and bicycles will be allowed to operate at a limited capacity.
While, modern PUVs and UV Express will be allowed to operate for the second phase which will run from June 22 to 30 with limited passenger capacity.
Muntinlupa Mayor Jaime Fresnedi has approved Executive Order No. 15 s.2020 allowing the resumption of tricycle operations in the city during the community quarantine.
Starting May 25, the local government has allowed tricycle to operate and transport authorized passengers provided that they follow sanitary measures. An odd-even scheme has been enforced and tricycles can only operate from 5:00 AM – 12:00 MN.
Muntinlupa City has 229 confirmed cases with 158 recoveries, 39 active cases, 32 reported deaths, 47 suspect cases, and 342 probable cases as of June 1.
