MMDA targeting closure of all bus terminals on Edsa mid-May

(Eagle News)—-The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority is targeting the closure of all bus terminals on Edsa mid-May.

There are at least 47 bus terminals on the major thoroughfare.

“Our direction is to remove all bus terminals along EDSA and relocate them in the outskirts of the metro to minimize traffic congestion,” MMDA chairperson Danilo Lim said after its governing body, the Metro Manila Council,  approved a resolution banning the issuance of business permits to all public utility bus terminals and operators, and other public utility vehicles along Edsa.

With the move, the MMDA hopes to reduce congestion on Edsa.

The agency earlier said a dry-run with the closure of the terminals  in place would take place after the holidays.
