“I am excited to share that we are now working on a plan to run a Bus Rapid Transit or a high-capacity P2P system on our Skyway system, initially between Susana Heights and Balintawak,” San Miguel Corporation president Ramon Ang said in a statement on April 26.
“This has been our plan all along – for all our elevated expressways to directly benefit not just private motorists but mostly our commuters as well,” he added.
He noted that the primary purpose of SMC’s elevated tollroads is to divert vehicles from public roads to ease traffic for all.
“But a bus-based transit system will further maximize the benefits to the public and make commutes faster, easier, safer and more convenient for many,” he explained.
“Those who drive daily may even opt to commute, further easing traffic and reducing pollution. This will be a game-changer, one that will transform mass transit in Metro Manila,” Ang said.
