“Double deckers will save road space and increase passenger capacity. And it will make travel enjoyable,” Inton told The Manila Times.
“[This] option has been presented [but] the DOTC [Department of Transportation and Communications] prefers [the] bus rapid transit [BRT] system,” Coloma said in a text message to The Manila Times.
The BRT system, which was pilot-tested along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City, is being set up in Metro Cebu.
Coloma, a DOTC undersecretary in the first Aquino administration, however, clarified that they remain open to the double-decker bus idea and that it has not yet been junked as an option to ease traffic around the National Capital Region.
