1) LGUs deploying 1,500 auxiliaries for holidays

“The traffic auxiliaries will be deployed on national roads and Mabuhay Lanes as well as in other traffic-heavy areas beginning November 16, 2018, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) says. This latest holiday traffic measure is on top of malls making adjustments to their operating hours and prohibiting weekday sales, as well as a moratorium on roadwork.”

2) DPWH: Drying rice grain on national highways illegal

“The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) recently issued a statement reminding citizens about this existing law. The agency cited Department Orders it had issued in 2003 and 2013, as well as Presidential Decree No. 17, which dates back several decades.”

3) More P2P bus routes from NAIA are now available

“The Department of Transportation (DOTr) announced the new routes on Facebook. According to the agency, all the buses that will ply these routes are Euro 5-compliant, fully air-conditioned, and equipped with WiFi connection and CCTV cameras. The units also have luggage racks and low floors, making them ideal for travelers.”

4) Mall prohibits ‘standing reservations’ in parking area

“Reminder: For safety reasons, standing on a parking slot to reserve is not allowed. Parking spaces are on a first-come-first-serve basis.”

5) New P2P bus service from Alabang to Makati City

“The route, covered by RRCG Transport buses, was launched earlier today in Makati. The service will be available from Monday to Friday, with buses leaving for ATC at 7am and buses leaving for Makati City at 6PM. The one-way fare is set at P100. Sounds pricey at first, but considering the distance and how much more expensive ride-hailing is these days, it’s a pretty good deal.”

6) Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX) inauguration

Among the modern amenities the PITX boasts are CCTV cameras, a prayer room, a clinic, a breastfeeding station, and a modern automated fare-collection setup and online ticketing system. The structure will also house commercial establishments and business offices.
