Title: TRAPIK IN and AROUND METRO MANILA
Post by: wilch23 on Oct 24, 2016, 08:37 AM
Just so we're on the same page ...

TRAPIK, as used by most Pinoys, means heavy traffic, traffic jams or slow moving traffic

It seems that trapik is not getting any better yet.
Nowadays, everyday is trapik day.
Siguro Sunday lang ang medyo maluwag as long as you stay away from mall areas.

This is the reason I rarely go out.  If I do, i'd rather take a cab.

Hindi ba pwede ipagbawal na ung mga downpayment / installment scheme sa pagbili ng sasakyan.    Majority of cars on the road are brand new.  And I'd assume only 1% pays in full.

Ang dali bumili ng sasakyan pag utang.  Kaya lalo nag tratraffic.

Extend coding hours, people who can loan another car will buy another one for coding purposes.

Prevent addition of cars should be the temporary solution until we can get proper urban planning in place.

^^^^ Malabo yan lalo na at selling like hot cakes ang mga kotse. Magrereklamo mga car vendors kung babawasan ang kita nila

Parang this year lang ata announced ng car industry na tumaas ng 30% ang sales nila. Imagine, kung gaano karaming sasakyan yun na dumagdag. Malaking porsyento jan walang garahe.
Kaya makikita mo yung mga secondary roads e double parking na. Ngayon kung isasabatas na dapat part ng pagkakaroon ng kotse e magkaroon ng garahe, maraming pinoy ang magpapakita lang ng pekeng lugar na paggagarahean.

Ang pinakamabilis na paraan para mabawasan ang kotse ay magkaroon ng second coming of Ondoy.... Pero syempre sino ba may gusto non.....

Una, dapat wala nang 7 - 7 na oras sa coding. Totally whole day na dapat. Pangalawa, gandahan ang mass transportation yung tipong mas gugustuhin mo mag commute kesa magkaroon ng sariling kotse. Third, dapat parang kasing halaga ng Makati ang parking fee sa lahat ng parte ng Pilipinas.

may point ka, yan din kasi problema ko sa solution na na suggest ko.   i'm sure madami sa mga car retailers may mga kapit sa gobyerno.  makakagawa at makakagawa sila ng way magbenta.

at ung mga walang parking, makakakagawa at makakagawa na magpakita ng pekeng papeles or what pag naimplement ung no garage no car policy.

i doubt good transpo will ease traffic, kailangan talaga icontrol ung supply tulad sa singapore.  make cars 300% more expensive.  make it only affordable to a few.  tapos ung kalsada, make it paid per entry.  sigurado marami mag 2 isip mag dala ng sasakyan.

d lang sa manila problema ng traffic.   sana masolusyonan ito ng tama

if ayaw ng taga zamboanga ng higher taxes stay sila doon.

medyo maliit kasi singapore as an example.   siguro maganda mga state sa US, different state, different tax rate.  different toll rates.

sa manila, since sobra daming tao, taasan taxes, taasan tolls.

agree to mas transport.  with proper control.  hindi ung parang lrt, lrt2, mrt natin.  puno na pilit parin pagkasyahin tao sa loob.  sana may counter per entry.  max number of person per train stop lang pwede makapasok sa entrance (electronic naman ung entrance may etap etc so dapat kaya to gawin)

Tanggalin ang colorum buses. I-ban ang mga kotse na 15years old na ang tanda.

Yung local government mga bulag. kitang kita naman yung problema ng mga nagpaparada sa daan di man lang higpitan. Kung di pwede ipagbawal ang paggagarahe sa daan, e di pagusapan na bigyan na lang ng isang linya kung saan sila magpaparada.
Title: Re: TRAPIK IN and AROUND METRO MANILA

hay hirap kasi ang lakas mag lagay ng mga buses, jeeps, etc.

iniisip ko nga, what if lahat ng private vehicle owners magsama sama, sila mag lagay ngayon sa gobyerno, baka mas malaki ang lagay maibigay natin kesa dyan sa mga may ari ng mga colorum etc

Toll siguro pwede, pero car tax, malabo kasi it won't be justifiable.
In the end, the only way to lessen the number of cars on the road is to provide an acceptable alternative - mass transport or work at home

Maraming drivers na kulang sa driving experience minamaneho pa ng SUV at mga sub-compact may mahina ng makina. Many drivers are confused too with too many traffic signs including non official signs.

Roads are to be shared.  Do not hog it for oneself.  If everyone do not practice road courtesy, the traffic problem will still worsen.

Confuse ako sa ibang traffic laws. Nahuli kami one time mejo nasa inner lane na merong U-Turn. Di ko alam na bawal pala yun..... Yan ang problema sa "bigay"an ng license sa LTO wehehehehe

3 digits per day nadaw.  I assume parang sa pasig, odd/even.  Or 1-2-3 on mondays, 4-5-6 on tuesdays.  Etc.

Bibili lang ulit ng isa pang oto mga may pera o kaya mag loan hehehe.

Is it really private vehicles causing horrible traffic across the whole metro?

Volume kasi talaga ang problema e. So nakaka dagdag talaga ang private vehicles lalo na at marami jan nakaparada lang sa gilid gilid

Di ba di na napipili ang ending ng plaka ngayon? May risk na parehas yung last number ng kotse mo


Isa pang dagdag sa katrapikan yung mga MMDA na di alam ung trabaho nila kaway lang ng kaway at walang sense of time.

Pipigilin ka at your green light dahil gusto paunahin yung ibang direction. Ngayon kakauna sa direction na yun napupuno yung linya nila. Kaya kapag green light ka na di ka na rin makausad. Hayst

As long as the public transport system is insufficient, both quantity and quality, the people should not be faulted for buying cars and actually using them.

Title: Re: TRAPIK IN and AROUND METRO MANILA
Post by: Vinch on Nov 23, 2016, 06:51 PM
few of the solutions imo:
 
*wag basta basta magbibigay ng license ang LTO especially professionals. itaas ang standard. (sa ibang bansa mahirap kumuha)

*i-implement ng maayos ang mga penalty sa pagma maneho ng mabagal. (sa ibang bansa ganito din)

*professional drivers lang ang pwede sa mga outermost left lane (fast lane)

*itaas ang max speed limit.

*huwag kasuhan ng reckless imprudence ang mga aksidenteng makasagasa ng mga pasaway sa daan.
Title: Re: TRAPIK IN and AROUND METRO MANILA
Post by: IGX on Nov 23, 2016, 07:06 PM
ok ako sa mga stricter implementation.  basta walang exemption.  pati motor hulihin.

tama na dapat pati mga walang parking, mga naka park sa kalsada (tomas morata, buong circle area, abs cbn area) itow, huliin agad.  impound until walang maipakitang papeles na meron sila parking slot.

mga terminal sa daan ipagbawal, pagbaba kung saan saan ng mga bus, jeep, ganun din.   

ipagbawal ang mga tricycle sa daan.  ang dami nito sa scout area at kung saan saan pa.  hari harian pa sila doon.

ang problema, pag pinagbawal lahat yan, aalma ang major voters (class e and d people) na inaalagaan ng mga politiko

Post by: medic22 on Nov 24, 2016, 05:34 AM
Solution ko para iwas heavy traffic:

dagdagan ang number coding instead of 1 digit make it 2 or letter naman yung isa.
yung mga conduction sticker lang na walang plate wag muna dumaan sa edsa for 3-6 months grace period.
abolish na mga lumang sasakyan or bigyan ng mataas na tax mga lumang model
RFID para sa mga legit vehicles
ayusing mga drainage para iwas baha- iwas tengga sa daan
meron motorcycle windows for 2-3 lanes. per day
strict implementation ng lahat ng traffic rules.

hugot na hugot na hehe

Sa mga suggestions dito, obvious kung sino ang may kotse at kung sinong nagpa-public transpo, batay sa kung saan sila pumapanig.

What the government will do is raise taxes on new car purchases.  Ang mangyayari, people will buy second hand cars.

Noong simula, bilib ako kay Tugade, pero hanggang ngayon, wala pa rin siyang masyadong nagagawa.

Why haven't they started on new road constructions?  Why haven't they hurried to finish on going road work?

Parang gusto niya, magka-buhol-buhol muna tayo sa traffic para bigyan si digong ng emergeny powers...

Alam ko magaling talaga si Tugade dahil maganda track record nya. Pero parang wala naman talagang mangyayari sa katrapikan kahit doctor of transportation galing sa University of Tokyo pa ang humawak ng posisyon unless lawakan yung mga daan at gandahan ang mass transport na hindi mo mararamdaman sa ngayon if ever at magsasakripisyo ka ng bonggang bongga sa additional heavy traffic due to construction



Parati na lang mag cry foul ang mga public transport organization sa lahat ng policy i.e. pasang masda

Di naman sila tumulong para ma-cleanse yung hanay nila. Dapat sila na mismo gumawa ng hakbang laban sa mga colorums since alam naman nila kung sino sino yan. Lagi na lang sila nakapanig sa mga kasama nila.

Nakakainis din ang ibang armchair analysts na nagsasabing public transport is better dahil mas efficient sila, based sa passenger capacity.

Buses observed to be running along EDSA with 10-15% load during off peak hours.
Saan bawal iyan. Jeepnis speeding and wasting diesel because they get additional.1 peso discount .  And also tricycles doing octopus parking in corner terminals. because the operators are foolishmen.

Kasama ba sa public transport ang bus at jeeps? kasi papano masasabi na efficient sila e yung pag ilaw nga lang kung kakanan o kakaliwa sila di nila magawa ng tama

Yung nga point ko.
Sa real world situation natin, 3 jeepneys can use up 1 lane on a road.
The buses are worst, 3 of them can use up 2 lanes on EDSA.

matagal construction dito dahil ang systema sa gobyerno is pag nanalo ka kontrata/bidding to work on a government project, halos 50% ng kikitain mo sa lagay pupunta.  tapos, natapos mo na ung project d ka pa nababayaran.  kaya ung mga contractor (na alam ko) iniipit rin ang project pag d naabutan ng bayad.

Nagdinner kami ng friend ko kagabi sa Makati.

Taga Makati lang siya and ako sa South pa. Naunahan ko pa siya umuwi.

Grabe talaga traffic sa Maynila

Tama ka dun. Taga Makati kami, at mas mabilis pang pumunta ng Asian Hospital sa Alabang, kumpara sa St. Luke's  sa BGC tuwing rush hour!

There are actually BPO and branch offices in Cebu, same with South and north luzon. I have colleagues living from both areas but according to them the pay is also low, so they still choose to work in Manila.

Mas lalong magkakatrapik sa Manila kung doon pa siya magtatayo ng buwisitness niya.

I think the idea is to have this policy in place indefinitely.
The target is volume reduction.

Guys, paki back-read mabuti para maintindihan maagi....

Hindi naman basta-basta ang pag-alis ng mga taga province sa Manila. Kaya nga ang sabi ko, improve the provinces just like Manila. Then, tsaka pwede nang umalis mga taga-province sa Manila.

Heto para mas maintindihan. Kung magtayo si SM, JG, Lucio Tan, at lahat na ng tycoons sa probinsya ng mga opisina especially call centers, factories, airports, sea ports, malls, etc., siyempre, kailangan nila ng mga empleyado. Tapos, salary will be the same as in Manila.
Local lang muna ang i-improve. Next, pag ok, yung buong bansa. Pag maunlad na ang Pinas at malaki na din ang sahod, eh di yung mga OFW, uuwi na.

Look at Malaysia, hindi lang sa KL ang may mga work at mataas na sahod. Look at SK, hindi lang sa Seoul, Look at Japan, SG, China, etc......

U-turn slot--very bad for long and wide vehicles such as cargo trucks. Better open intersections and allow left and u turn.

Small narrow roads are also "very bad for long and wide vehicles such as cargo trucks" ...
The drivers/operators of these type of vehicles should know which route to take, dba?
Those U-turn slots are excellent for our unique road conditions.
Anyone who were driving before the U-turns knows what a big improvement that was.
A very practical solution, courtesy of Bayani Fernando, by far the best MMDA chief ever.

Not a good idea kung objective mo is to reduce volume.
Think about it.
Assuming a normal distribution of 'ending' digits, only 1 out of 10 is off the streets in this setup.
The current setup is double that - 2 out of 10 cars off the streets.
The simplest other 'ending' scheme to further reduce volume would be 'odd-even'.
50% agad ang bawas dyan, pero baka magcomplain sobra mga tao.

Any other 'ending' would be more complicated and not so practical.

Sa narrow roads, hindi pwede talaga.
The current problem with U-turn slots is not the setup but the drivers pa rin.
It is still a better alternative than having many left turns at intersections.
If only we can all remember what it was like before.

Flashback ....

Right lane straddled by jeepneys, buses, etc with some occupying even the second lane.
Inner lane naman slowed by left turning vehicles, nagiging more than just 1 lane din.
Saan dadaan si pass through car? Maiinis sa tagal, then yellow light na, habol pa rin ...
Bang! Patola is waiting pass the intersection!


NOW naman ...

Slow down sa Inner lane moved from intersection to the U-turn slots some distance away.
Some jeepneys still clogged the curbside lane at the intersections.
But because magka-ibang location na ang clogging ni U-turn and jeepneys ... you get the picture?

The added benefit ng setup ni Bayani is nawala ang kotong cops sa mga intersections.

saka kasi pagbagsak nila ng cebu, mas marami kang mappuntahang maganda, as a western tourist point of view. Sa manila pag bagsak mo san ka ppunta na may culture side ng pinas? tama lang na sa cebu na sila bumagsak talaga.

Even before the new terminal, maraming tourists duon.
I heard many didn't even know that they were in the Philippines.
Ang marketing ng Cebu sa international tours ay "Island in the Pacific" kasi.

Isa pa, mas konti ang percentage ng heavy traffic flow sa Cebu unlike the Philippines. Pag baba mo ng Mactan madali ka na agad makakapuna sa main city hub nila unlike na pag baba nila sa Manila maraming sumasalubong na stress. I also heard na mas maganda daw ang taxi sa Cebu unlike sa Manila na may price surge pag galing kang ibang bansa, nakametro daw talaga sa Cebu. Di ko nasubukan yun though. I've seen also tourist na gumagamit ng jeepney nila.

I listened to an interview of a MMDA official on GMA radio.
I'm flabbergasted by the opinion of both the Radio Host and the official.

1.Need daw huli para mag-improve ang traffic flow sa MM ans nahihirapan sila kasi kulang daw ang personnel.
2.Sa dami ng streets in MM, MMDA can't post enough enforcers on all major roads daw! sorry daw muna while they add more people.

Their solution is INCREASE PENALTIES!

... especially daw on illegal parking!
Title: Re: TRAPIK IN and AROUND METRO MANILA
Post by: angeljme on Apr 04, 2017, 01:40 PM
^---well, illegal parking is really a problem here in PH.  Alam naman ng nag-park na illegal yung ginagawa nya. Check lang, baka makalusot. Or, everybody else is doing it.  I'm just going with the flow.  Dapat nga itaas nila ng mataas talaga ang penalty.

I remember my kid telling my mom that, yeah she can smoke along the overpass in HK.  The fine is only HKD5000.  By that logic, she can smoke as long as she can pay the fine.

So, mag-illegal park ka pa ba kung P5000 na ang penalty? Or babayad ka na lang ng parking fee at magpark sa tamang lugar?

Title: Re: TRAPIK IN and AROUND METRO MANILA
Post by: wilch23 on Apr 04, 2017, 05:19 PM
I should have elaborated.
Ang sabi kasi sa radio program, hindi daw nila mabantayan lahat kasi kulang sa tao, so taasan nalang ang illegal parking fine and then dagdag pa tao.

Isip ko naman, ang objective ba ay fine? as in revenue generation?
And deterrent ba ay grave punishment or assurance of being punished?

Nowhere in the world naman meron police force na kaya bantayan lahat ng lugar nila.
The key is consistency in enforcement.
Kung alam ng tao na bawal at consistent ang enforcement, iwas na yan.

Kahit naman 100,000 pa yan, kung wala naman huli or pwedeng daanan sa 5000 tong wala rin.

Remember the announcement of astronomical fine for colorums?
Asan na colorums? Biyahe pa rin dba?

Second, mga pampasadang sasakyan na may memo of agreement sa local municipality.

Actually kayang gawin yan kung talagang gustuhin.
Step by step lang.

Do it by area lang na kaya ng manpower/logistics.
Start on main thoroughfares.

1. identify critical roads.
2. announcement of 'NO PARKING" - say, 2-3 weeks in advance with visible signs
3. implement by towing and clamping after grace period.
4. Move to next target area while doing random apprehensions on previously cleared roads.

Minor streets may be parked on 1 or 2 sides on a case to case basis.
These are under local govt units so their cooperation is absolutely necessary.

this might be true. just doing the math, car owners far exceed those who have real parking. car is so cheap these days.
the only viable solution is to lessen this problem by imprving public transport tremendously.

however, the politicians have no incentives to improve public transpo. they dont commute anyway. who cares right?
there should be a law that force lawmakers to commute. who cares if they got ambushed and murdered. that's part of the fun of the commuting public.
Title: Re: TRAPIK IN and AROUND METRO MANILA
Post by: wilch23 on Apr 07, 2017, 01:52 PM
Oo nga, as long as there is a lack of convenient and decent public transportation, govt should not limit private cars.

While flexible working hours and work from home can lessen traffic on the streets, only a few type of workers can do this.
Note that the solution for transportation is always mass transport and nothing else.

As for public officials, maybe they may still find some compassion in their hearts?
Or at least be fed up with the traffic situation, or the complaints of their constituents, failing that, maybe of their family and relatives, which will finally force them to do some good?

Not holding my breath.

Oh ...
So they will be using it at least twice on a working day (round trip)...
What will they use for leisure then?
Is that not considered frequent already?

Now if they use the train, bus or FX on working days, and only use Grab/Uber for leisure, maybe there'll be some savings.
BTW, if you already own a car why would you still use Grab/Uber unless it's your car's day off via the coding system.

Phase out of the current crop of jeepneys is under way.

Incoming are electric, hybrid and EURO-4 diesel PUVs.
From the press release so far, the downpayment is to be waived (? or paid by the govt? kita pa rin suppliers?)
Govt will also provide financing - around 800 pesos per day payment is required.

The big ? is the loan payment of 800/day.
Since drivers are currently paying 800/day, no more operators?

But the same press release also said the LTFRB will no longer accept small time operators of a few units. It suggested that the drivers/operators merge to form an operator with more units each (COOP?)

Again why operators pa if the drivers can pay 800/day directly to acquire the unit. And what profit will an operator get, wala na?

Even then, I wonder whether the 800/day is computed at 5-6-7 days/week
Maintenance day paano? Sick days paano?
Plus how will they pay for the maintenance of the unit? This will be on top of the 800/day obligation.
Further, wala pang field testing of these units, especially the electrically powered motors.

Tama lang, no colorum.

Pero I disagree with LTFRB re UBER and GRAB.
HIndi naman sila transport operator.
They should not be under the jurisdiction of the DOTr or any of its agencies.

Business nila is dispatch service provider via app.
Ang tunay na client nila are the drivers.

Just as the car companies provide cars to the drivers, so do these 2 software companies provide dispatch service to drivers, kaya nga bayad sa kanila galing sa mga drivers/car owners din.



I think I may need to correct what I said.
UBER is purely an app for ride sharing - ergo not under DOTr at all.
I'm not so sure about Grab. Parang hindi designed as ride sharing app.

More knowledgeable input is most welcome.
Pls educate us. TIA

Last day of vacay in second tier city Guangzhou near Hk..Arrived to airport too early and wifi is free anyways... No fb google messneger viber though, theres PMT! Lol

Population Metro Manila 12.8M. Population Guangzhou 14M

 Mass transport as efficient as it can be.  10 freaking subway lines. Not counting high speed train to other cities. Just like Japan and HK, trains arrive on time, every two to 4minutes interval. One of the lines even does not have operator/driver, fully automated. One ic ounted has 30 stations.

If that is not convenient enough, when you get out of the subway, which may not be exactly where your destination is but so near yet so far,  No worries if youre lazy to walk, they have bike- sharing apps.... Every major corner there are bikes. Just use your phone to scan and pay, take and ride the bike to your destination and leave it there.  ( the setback is there is mass graveyard of shared bikes, but its the prob of the operator)

Connection?
First, Im really hoping the first subway line in our country will start construction soon. we have to catch up.

Second, was thinking if bike sharing will work in our country.. Definitely no.. People will just ride it home and youll see chop chop parts in bike shops...lol.. In other words, we need discipline.  And sadly, just my opinion, developing discipline is harder than building the first subway line.

^ i stayed there for a few weeks in 2007 when we took a cousin for cancer treatment a the fuda hospital.

used the subway a few times with no problems. same with taxis. easy train ride to hong kong. no issues at the airport. didn't have to worry about safety.


edit to add: one big worry was if we were out on the town to identify places with "western" bathrooms; or make sure we did our personal business beforehand. avoided squatting like a plague.

I beg to disagree, kung meron nyan, wala na rin bibili ng parts or bike na ordinary. Kung meron mag take advantage it will stop after a short while.

This is something to consider: Uber/Grab is a commissioner also contractor-service provider?

TECHNICALLY YES, pero service provider sya , not of transport, but of connecting riders to carpool drivers, supposedly.

Is the driver or car owner considered as a contractor too?


Definitely, he is the one providing the transport service.
But they should not be compared to TAXIs nor UVs. They are more comparable to van for hire, or truck for hire, pero not exactly either.
RIDE SHARING nga, CARPOOL po.


In case of damage/injury claims who is answerable?


ETO mabigat na tanong.

So many bike sharing schemes have ceased in China.  I came across one news item in Chinadaily.com last week.


Ganon ba ?

I wonder whether they abused the bikes so that the latter broke down, or they steal them outright?
Kung private operator, pwede rin nalulugi.
OR, there are now few takers since lahat gusto naka auto na?

Depende sa reason for cessation of service.

This is my opinion:

ang alam ko, Uber was created para sa additional income ng mga car owners.  pwede ka magsabay ng pasahero kung on the way naman, may incentive ka pa.  Uber was not initially created for use na parang taxi.  Nagamit lang na parang taxi company.  Grab is for taxis.  App for taxis. Ginaya lang ni Grab si Uber sa Grab car.

because of the deal, there is parking and blocking of 1-2 lanes. And there is high tuition cost for the DLS students. That place looks like a jeepney terminal.
dapat dyan may nakaabang na 5-10 tow trucks each side. kung sino titigil batak na... political will kailangan..

And speaking of traffic violations, dpat mmda and lto should coordinate with the help of motorists.
My idea and suggestion :

There should be a website wherein motorists can take  and submit videos or photos of erring cars. like blocking the pedestrian lane during red light.

Those photos will be evidences of traffic violations and during annual car registrations, penalties WITH THESE PHOTOS will be given to the motorist who is registering the car.  Fair enough...

But the thing is, ayusin muna yun plaka at stickers, 4 years and counting na goodness... (at least normalizing na renewal ng drivers license)

What if the violator sold to you or to another person his/her motor vehicle before the renewal? New motor vehicles have 3 years.
What if the violator is just your driver and then after some time, before the renewal, you replaced him or he's no longer working for you?
What if the violator is a friend of yours who just borrowed your vehicle?
What if the violator is a syndicate and the motor vehicle is just a replicate of your vehicle?
What if the violator is a driver of PUV, PUJ, Taxi, Buses, Jeeps, Uber, Grab, wherein most of the drivers are not permanent?

Maybe you are not informed.

http://www.mmda.gov.ph/20-faq/2040-no-contact-traffic-apprehension-policy-11-things-you-need-to-know

My idea is just an extension of MMDAs no contact apprehension policy.

Not just MMDA cctv, but privatye citiznes capture... (private citizens photos should have date stamp and their capture should be within a certain amount of days to be valid).

If you will rebut by saying private citizens can alter the date stamps, cant mmda too?


Your questions are legit though... but MMDA says your car, your responsibility.

These motorcyclists are in always rushing. And when they become hold-upers or become killers or deliver shabu, they can escape fast without being identified because of their full face helmets and no LTO plates.

Why not require there to wear ventilated racing bikers head protectors instead? 

Sometimes they also wear a hood to conceal their face when helmet gets accidentally removed.

Beware of the power of these bad elements in large numbers.

Meron talagang malakas sa loob e, kasi lahat na lang ng panukalang batas para madaling makilala ang motorcycle rider nahaharang
Sa totoo lang maganda naman yung mga batas na meron silang helmet na nakalagay don yung plate number (ginagawa ata yan sa Angkas) and yung parang damit. Madali mo malalaman kung forever na bang "for registration" yung plaka ng mga rider. Pero wala, harang pa rin

From PDI Report:

"A draft ordinance in Quezon City seeks to impose speed limits depending on the type of road, following findings that the city has been recording the highest number of vehicular accidents in Metro Manila over the past six years.

Under the proposed measure authored by Councilor Oliviere Belmonte, chair of the city council’s transport committee, city roads would have a speed limit of 30 kilometers per hour for all vehicles, while the maximum is 20 kph on barangay or collector roads. (Emphasis mine)

On busier roads, motorists can go only up to 50 kph. The draft ordinance mentions Aurora Boulevard, E. Rodriguez Sr. Avenue, Kamuning Road, Santolan Road and West Avenue as examples where this limit can be imposed.

Vehicles can travel up to 40 kph on East Avenue, Quezon Avenue, Timog Avenue and North Avenue, while they can go up to 60 kph on Commonwealth Avenue."

I have read and heard so much feedback re the suspension on Uber.
MOst often, people are supporting Uber based on their pleasant experience with using the app.

It then occurred to me that all these people are confusing Uber with the Uber drivers.
While it is true that the Uber drivers and their rides are generally much much better than the usual taxi, Uber is a different animal.

I hope we don't miss that distinction.
Why not REVIEW TAXI FRANCHISES honestly and just give them to the Uber drivers and taxi company that are of the same quality instead?
It seems they are the transport solution people wanted.

Now that DU30 is the president, I guess he realized that sometimes traffic can got to hell for certain events and that is ok for the govt.
No need to cuss.
So his dead-ma on this is really the right thing to do.

2 days Jeepney Strike - partial lang led by PISTON some other groups did not join.

Phase out of Jeepneys - to do or not to do?
Para sa DU30 admin, Go go go away na!

New versions of UV has to be electric or Euro4 compliant.
Wow, high standards!

I read this comment ...

Kung 1.2-1.6 ang isang 'modern' jeepney, bibili nalang ako ng Toyota or Nissan van for UV Express, mas mura na, tested reliability, mas mataas pa pasahe.

Oo nga naman, no need na modernize na yan, palitan nalang ng vans ...
Not saying this is the solution for our mass transport problem, just pointing out the modernization of jeepney seems to be superfluous

Trying watching this video and know more....
Some features of e-jeepneys  : BEEP card tap on tap off payment, fare tracking using GPS, entrance on side, expanded width and height entrance, better legroom, 22-27 passengers per jeep, mandatory dashcam, cctvs inside the jeep, cctv, high celing, some have aircon
Traditional jepneys : side opening, euro 4 clean emission
Proposal : monthly wage for drivers, proper stops

I also have some qualms about it... Palitan nga to newer, greener, more comfortable jeeps, sira ulong driver pa rin hahawak dyan at mgmemaintain nyan....

Kung sino kikita dyan, iba na usapan, sure meron yan...basta priced fairly sana...
Maintenance...baka baklasin mga cctv and 3 months lang di na gumagana yan

Ang negative ng vans naman, yun low income earners di kaya yun fare, cramped up sardines especially yun back/end row/area. unloading both sides. kung one side naman, 3 people should get out for the leftmost person to alight, then they hop in again.

Unless the govt will provide subsidy for the newer version jeepneys, I doubt the financial viability of these units.

Bottom line is to modernize transport without subsidy, 8-12 pesos minimum fare is not feasible.

UPDATE: The Southwest Integrated Transport Exchange (SWITEx) project is now 33.9% complete. Beams of the third level are already being constructed.
Targeted to be completed by April 2018, SWITEx is an intermodal facility that aims to provide our commuters from southern Luzon with seamless transfers, fixed departure schedules, and centralized ticketing system, while reducing the number of buses plying along Manila area, EDSA, and other major thoroughfares.

Cancelled na ang 2-day Jeepney Strike slated sana starting tomorrow.

Last time they tried this kasi, first day, suspended ang classes pero normal na ang second day. So this time around, nag dare ang govt.

On top of the dare, nag-labas na rin ng arrest warrant kay Piston Pres. George San Mateo. San na kaya nagtatago eto?

In short, nag chicken out ang Pistons et al.
Akala ko pa naman walang traffic jam na sana bukas! DRAT!

The main problem of traffic congestion in Metro Manila is the mindset of all the Filipinos in general. Kahit na malapit lang ang pupuntahan natin, kahit 3 blocks lang ang layo, sumasakay pa tayo ng sasakyan kaya lalong dumarami ang mga private vehicles.

I live here in Japan for five years now and I wish that we Filipinos could adapt the importance and convenience of using bicycles as an alternative transportation. Dito sa Japan, kahit may edad na nagbibisikleta pa rin. Kahit naka-japorms pa, o kahit suot mo pampasok sa opisina, kahit nga naka-mini skirt na mga mga kababaihan (especially mga estudyante sa high school) nagbibisikleta. Maraming mga bansa, mauunlad na bansa, na binibigyan ng importansya ang paggamit ng bisikleta.

Sa kasalukuyan, sa Metro Manila, mahirap talagang magbisikleta sa mga kalsada at sidewalk, o designated bike lanes dahil para kang nakikipag patintero sa mga sasakyan. Nakahambalang ang mga sasakyan sa sidewalk, may mga nagtitinda, at meron pang mga sasakyan na humaraharang sa mga bike lanes. Kaya maraming ayaw magbisikleta dahil risky nga naman. But I think there’s one way to convince people to ride a bicycle or use bicycle as an alternative transportation.
During weekends, some major roads in Metro Manila, one lane can be blocked to give way for designated bike lanes. It should be EXCLUSIVE FOR BICYCLES ONLY on a scheduled time. Any drivers or riders who will use the temporary exclusive bike lanes will pay a hefty fine. The government can’t promote public to use alternative transportation such as using bicycles if there’s no clear bike lanes. Kahit ako ma-eenganyo na magbisikleta na lamang kung alam kong mae-enjoy ko pagbibiskleta, ligtas at mabilis kong mapupuntahan ang lugar.

There should also be a law that will require all companies and government agencies, that their employees will require a shifting of working hours every month. Hindi yung lahat sabay-sabay nagbubukas at lahat ng mga nagtatrbaho ay sabay-sabay nag-ko-commute papasok sa opisina. Syempre kapag ganyan scenario, talagang maraming tao sa kalye, maraming mga commuters. Pero kung hindi sabay-sabay sa pagpasok at pag-uwi, eh di less ang volume ng tao sa lansangan.

Tanggalin ang lahat ng mga provincial bus terminals sa LOOB ng Metro Manila, especially dyan along Edsa. Yun mga buses na papunta ng North, pwede sigurong magtayo ng isang malaking bus station na lamang sa may Camachile.

Ang LTO dapat i-revamp. Ewan ko kung paano pa napaparehistro ang mga napakaraming mga public utility vehicles na hindi na worthy pang tumakbo. Mausok, walang ilaw, buluk-bulok na, ang ingay ng music, ewan ko kung bakit na kakatakbo pa ito sa daan?

Yung ginawang pagdadagdag ng buwis sa pagbili ng mga sasakyan ay not so effective to reduce the private cars, sort of. Dapat binigyan nila ng consideration din ang pagpataw ng mas mataas na tax base sa laki ng kotse. Ang mga SUV, pickup, vans and the likes, yan ay kumakain ng malaking espasyo sa daan. Dapat bigyan ng special incentives, such as lower tax para sa mga may-ari  ng mga compact cars at small vehicles. May mga kakilala ako ang mga sasakyan mga SUV at pick-up tapos ang laman dalawang tao sa loob.

Murahin din ang LTFRB. Gaguhan na. Duts should do something about it.

They encourage carpooling, allow private cars to use yellow lanes if number of passengers required are met.

Tapos isususpend ang Wunder, a car-pooling app...

Meanwhile PISTON leader San Mateo threatens to go back on strike.

Eh, dba gusto nga ni DU30 mawala ang mga sasakyan na yan sa kalye?

So how can that help their cause?

A few days ago, I was almost victimized by a MMDA accredited Towing company.
At first, I was very civil in explaining to them that I'm willing to pay the fine for illegal parking violation but not for towing since I'm present before they can tow my car.
Later, I blew my top and shouted at them to not dare to tow it.
I even threatened to sue them for "carnapping" since they're forcibly taking my car against my will.
The MMDA guy came and saw the light, didn't even give me a ticket.

Jeepneys being removed from the streets just by the govt doing its job - out ang mga smoke belchers at yung mga lacking minimum safety requirements.

The result will be almost the same as a phase out.

NEW TACTIC to PHASE OUT PUJEEPNEY

Be Strict with PUJ vehicle requirements.
Example "Tanggal Bulok, Tanggal Usok " has resulted in many jeepneys being kept off the streets.

On the other hand, this has caused a severe shortage of affordable public vehicles for the public.
Case in point, last week, operation "Tanggal Bulok, Tanggal Usok" got 97 PUJs off the UP Diliman Area.
Only 10 solar powered jeepneys were dispatched to the area!

Well if EDSA were an expressway and one lane is dedicated to car pooling, then it MAY work.
For the current situation it is a plan to hoodwink the people.
Mas eye catching kasi ang EDSA, so MMDA gang wants traffic to move faster on EDSA to the DETRIMENT of ALL ROADS in the surrounding area.

Yan ang real ulterior motive nila, not to REALLY solve the traffic problem.

One solution that was weakly tried before but was quickly shelved - open up the PRIVATE ROADS in and around Metro Manila.

Just observe kung saan ang mga CLOSED VILLAGES/SUBDIVISIONS, there din grabe ang traffic jams.
Second is the unruly public transport drivers.
Pang 3rd lang ang volume of vehicles

This is another good move ng MMDA at DOTr. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1aXit9UMsE
Another alternative is, remove all bus terminals along EDSA. Build one or more central terminals within MM like HKIA terminals para malayo sa main road at hindi mag cause ng blockage or traffic.

Develop Laguna, Cavite, Batangas in the South, then Bulacan, Pampanga, La Union, and Pangasinan in the North.
