Mukhang wala pa, nakakarating pa sa pupuntahan: Panelo on alleged Manila transport crisis

“Mukha namang wala pa,” Presidential Spokesperson and Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Secretary Salvador Panelo said during the October 8 press briefing in Malacañang.

This is after Bayan Secretary-General Renato Reyes said that Metro Manila is facing a mass transport crisis with the problems LRT 1, 2, and MRT 3are facing.

“Wala. Kasi nga makakarating pa naman ‘yung mga dapat makarating sa kanilang pupuntahan,” Panelo explained.

“May solusyon naman doon eh. If you want to go – arrive early in your destination, then you go there earlier,” he added.

Bayan’s Reyes said “there are not enough trains to ferry commuters to work and school. Of the limited trains that we do have, ALL THREE suffered glitches last week. The LRT 1, LRT 2 and MRT 3 all experienced technical issues that disrupted operations.”

“I cannot remember a time when all three had glitches in the same week,” Reyes added.
