The city government is still accepting unsolicited proposals for its smart urban mobility and transportation system, one of its big ticket projects.

Mayor Benjamin Magalong said the city will accept offers until June 16.

Considered as one of the city’s catalytic projects, the smart mobility and transportation system aims to modernize the city’s public transportation system and provide a long-term solution to the city’s perennial traffic problem.

 “We want the public transport system to become so efficient that people would have less need to use private vehicles,” the mayor said.

The city first issued a call for proposal in August last year and received some offers.

The deadline was extended to reach more prospective proponents so that the city can have an array of proposals to choose the best from.

Details on the requirements and dynamics of the proposed projects may be obtained from the City Administrator’s Office at 442-5497. – Aileen P. Refuerzo
