12 additional buses rolled out during peak hours

TWELVE additional Bachelor Express Inc. units will be rolled out as part of the Peak Hours Augmentation Bus Service (PHABS) to serve more passengers who would otherwise be stranded for lack of transportation.

CTTMO chief Dionisio Abude said Bachelor Express Inc. committed to dispatch two to five units for the NHA Bangkal-Ecoland-Roxas route in the morning, and two to five units for the MacArthur Highway-Bangkerohan-Roxas-Ecoland route. The company will add more depending on the volume of stranded passengers.

Depende ni sa mga stranded nga pasahero. Depende sa monitoring sa atoang inspector, kay naa man ta’y pa-pirmahan sa ilaha, kung tinuod gyud nga nagbyahe sila. Pirma ang driver, pirma ang konduktor,” Abude said. 

Currently, Davao Metro Shuttle serves Catalunan Pequeño-Sto. Niño-Mintal, about two to six units deployed to areas on the instruction of bus inspectors. Golden Valley committed four to six units for CM. Recto-Panacan-Sasa and Panacan-Buhangin. 

Free bus rides are also implemented in the city, with a single unit for the Toril-Roxas route every Wednesday and Thursday, and for the Calinan-Roxas route every Friday and Saturday. 

The small city government bus is also deployed to Cabantian, as there are no bus companies serving that area.

As for the overloading situation of some bus units, Abude said they allow the act depending on the circumstances, such as during heavy rains or peak hours. 

Kita man gud, kabalo naman ta nga bahalag guot, gusto gyud ta makauli. Ang concern man gyud ani, syempre naa ma’y gihatag na special permit ang LTFRB, naa may enforcement sa LTO, ug ang atoang traffic group. So kung aduna ta’y agreement nga once ingani nga oras, kay  i-allow ra siya, basta kung dili ra delikado,” Abude added.
