The Quezon City government has launched a “Libreng Sakay” program where commuters can ride buses for free going to EDSA-Quezon Avenue.
The idea was a brainchild of Quezon City Task Force for Transport and Traffic Management Ariel Inton.
Mayor Joy Belmonte welcomed the positive results of Inton’s initiative. In a Facebook post, she shared the message of the city’s traffic czar to her about the status of commuters along Commonwealth Avenue.
