Public utility buses are often blamed for causing the slow flow of traffic on the 23.8-kilometer Edsa, which spans from Monumento, Cloocan City, in the north to Pasay City in the south. Many drivers of these buses often linger on any part of the avenue waiting for passengers or pick up or unload passengers as they please, causing traffic to slow down.—Rick Alberto
