The EDSA Busway has been the subject of much criticism lately, especially after reports came out that less than half of the busway’s capacity was being utilized during rush hour. Today is a bit different, though, as we have some good news regarding the EDSA Carousel: two new stations have just opened up in the metro.
The Department of Transportation (DOTr) earlier today officially integrated the new Roxas Boulevard and Taft Avenue Busway stations. These are now the two southernmost stops of the EDSA Carousel.

“Dito po sa Department of Transportation hindi po tayo titigil,” said DOTr secretary Jaime Bautista. “Mag-iisip tayo ng paraan para magkaroon po ng accessible, affordable, convenient and safe travel para sa ating lahat.”
