Reblocking will begin by Holy Wednesday at 2pm

The MMDA have moved the start of the comprehensive Holy Week 2014 EDSA reblocking project to Holy Wednesday at 2pm from Tuesday at 10pm after officials of the MMDA met with provincial bus operators yesterday.

With such an encompassing coverage of EDSA, which you will find below, a request was made to allow the motorists and commuters ample time to exit Metro Manila.

To ease the burden of commuters planning going out to provincial destinations from the city, the MMDA has suspended the number-coding scheme for provincial buses starting today until Easter Monday April 21.

And for people planning to take passenger buses out of Metro Manila, the LTFRB has issued an extra 594 ‘special permits to operate’ to provincial bus operators so they can cope with the massive number of expected commuters.
