MANILA, Philippines — Over 200 buses were allowed to operate in newly-established routes to help ferry commuters go to their workplaces amid the general community quarantine (GCQ) now being enforced, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said Friday.

In a message to reporters, Transportation Assistant Secretary Goddess Hope Libiran said the 220 bus units will be deployed in the following routes:


Monumento to Balagtas – 116 bus units

EDSA Quezon Ave to Montalban – 30 bus units


Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Loop – 74 bus units

The three bus routes were put in place on Thursday to assist commuters who found themselves stranded and unable to reach their workplaces as public transportation remains limited.

Under GCQ, buses and jeepneys are still not allowed on the roads while railways, bus augmentation, taxis, transport network vehicle services, point-to-point buses, and the use of bicycles are allowed.
