The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announced yesterday that it has begun a two-week dry run for provincial buses to return to EDSA once more. This development happened after the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) Resolution No. 101 on uniform travel protocols expired on March 24.

“The MMDA will implement a two-week dry run allowing all provincial buses from traversing along the stretch of EDSA,” MMDA chairperson Romando Artes said in a statement. “The DOTr and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board gave the green light to allow provincial buses to ply EDSA starting 10 p.m. tonight (Thursday, March 24, 2022) up to 5 a.m.,” he added.

Artes mentioned that in preparation for the “new normal” new traffic plans are being proposed, including the return of provincial buses on EDSA, the expansion of the number coding scheme, and reimplementation of the truck ban policy.

“We will conduct a series of consultations to further improve traffic management in Metro Manila. Rest assured that we will thoroughly study the proposed solutions and we will address the concerns of the commuters and transport sector,” he said.
