MULTIPLE CHOICE | A, B, or C? Taken by surprise, commuters express support for new bus scheme

On December 18, as the holiday rush was nearing its peak, the agency discharged with managing vehicular traffic in the Philippine capital chose to impose a new bus scheme.

Under the new arrangement, buses were classified according to their routes, reducing the stops where they could pick up and/or drop off passengers.

The move is expected to ease congestion on Edsa, the country’s busiest capital, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said.

But did it work?

Apparently, it did, despite initial complaints that passengers were forced to take long walks to their stops because the MMDA failed to disseminate information about the scheme.

Here are videos—all under one minute each—which asked everyone—driver, dispatcher, commuter, and MMDA officer—what they think of the new bus scheme.
