Punong barangays are requested by Traffic and Transport Management Division (TTMD) to submit proposed loading and unloading/public transport stops in their areas of responsibility.
This is in addition to the more than 200 spots around the city which were earlier marked by the TTMD.
TTMD head Januario Borillo said PBs are aware of their constituents’ needs, and knowledgeable where the most safe and appropriate location of each public stop/loading and unloading spot should be.
Public transport stops/loading and unloading areas for students in schools both within and outside of the central business district are also being sought, Borillo said, citing public areas being used as parking lots; along General Luna and Navy Base roads.
The loading and unloading areas should be within the ambit of the local transport road plan with a joint inspection by TTMD and barangay officials, before final approval Borillo added.
Coordination with a private mall, institutions and other concerned individuals will be also be done for a parking and a limited staging area for public transportation. – Julie G. Fianza
