The Metro Manila Development Authority made the announcement Monday as it started the dry run activity for the implementation of a new policy regulating the entry of provincial buses along Edsa.

The Metro Manila Council, the MMDA´s governing board and policy-making body, recently approved a resolution to remove all bus terminals along Edsa as part of the government’s long-term solution to the worsening traffic situation in the National Capital Region.

Provincial buses coming from South Luzon Expressway, especially those from Batangas and Laguna, are encouraged to pass through the terminal in Sta. Rosa City in Laguna, while those coming from the North Luzon Expressway are told to use the terminal in Valenzuela City, instead of entering Edsa.

Based on the initial plan, Metro Manila-bound passengers can transfer to city operating buses that will take them to their destination in Metro Manila.

The MMDA is also implementing the no loading and unloading policy for provincial bus along EDSA.
