Senator Grace Poe’s New Proposal To Solve EDSA Traffic Crisis: Triple-Decker Buses

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Forget about the elevated pedestrian walkways or the business coach on MRT. Senator Grace Poe has a new proposal to alleviate the almost insurmountable traffic crisis in Metro Manila, especially along EDSA.

Today, Poe — chair of the Senate Committee on Public Services — proposed the fielding of triple-deckers to replace the dilapidated city buses that now ply the Quezon City to Makati route.

Poe told The Adobo Chronicles that for each triple decker that is fielded on EDSA,  “we can reduce the number of buses  that clog the busy thoroughfare by three.”

The Senator said she plans to  travel to Europe next month to observe the mass transportation system in the developed countries, particularly the use of double decker buses.  “But we can do better,” she said.  I’d like to see triple deckers instead.”
