Government Proposes the Return of Double-Decker Buses in Manila

The Government is planning to re-implement the Cory-era Odd-Even Traffic Scheme; aside from this, they are taking into consideration the return of double-decker buses to help ease the bad traffic flow in Metro Manila or National Capital Region (NCR).

“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.
