The newly opened route will have a few pickup and drop-off points in Parañaque, namely: Tierra de Maria (Behrouz restaurant), E. De la Rama (across Ministop), and the Puregold branch across the Mandarin Palace. Operations will begin this Monday, January 27.
The premium Euro 4-compliant buses that will ply this route boast electronic payment collection, in-cabin Wi-Fi access, CCTV and dash cameras, and built-in GPS. Fare is set at P100, while senior citizens, PWDs, and students can enjoy a discounted rate of P80. Trips follow a fixed schedule from Monday to Friday, and the buses will only be filled to seating capacity—standing passengers will not be accommodated.
“Ang pampublikong transportasyon, dapat nagsisilbing isang equalizer. Ibig sabihin, ang pagpili ’ho ng uri ng transportasyon ng publiko ay hindi nakabase sa kanilang estado sa buhay. Nakapormal na damit ka man, maari kang sumakay ng bus. Mahirap o mayaman, kayang sumakay sa mga pampublikong jeep,” said DOTr assistant secretary for road transport and infrastructure Mark Steven Pastor.
So, what do you think? Will you be using this new P2P service regularly?
