Top Gear Philippines Philippine Car News - MMDA to allow provincial buses to use EDSA underpasses over Undas, Christmas season

Metropolitan Manila Development Authority chairman Francis Tolentino will allow provincial buses to use certain underpasses along EDSA, "not just to alleviate traffic and maximize the road use of city bus stops," but also to benefit those who will be going to the provinces this All Saints' Day weekend and Christmas season.

In a memorandum signed by Tolentino, from October 28, 2014, to January 4, 2015, provincial buses will be allowed to use the rightmost lane of the following EDSA underpasses:

* EDSA/Aurora Boulevard (northbound and southbound);

* EDSA/P. Tuazon (northbound and southbound); and

* Shaw Boulevard (northbound and southbound)

An odd-even number scheme will also be followed with the provincial buses' use of the above EDSA underpasses. Those with plate numbers ending in 1,3,5,7 and 9 will be allowed from Monday to Wednesday only, while those with plate numbers ending in 2,4,6,8 and 0 are allowed from Thursday to Saturday only. On Sundays, the provincial buses are prohibited from using the aforementioned underpasses.

Adjust your driving and route accordingly.
