The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) on Monday launched free shuttle services to airline passengers bound for Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) terminals as part of their “MMDA Airport Christmas Shuttle” project.
Under the project, MMDA will ferry departing airline passengers to Terminals 1, 2, 3 and 4 from Monday (December 15) to Tuesday (December 23).
Connie Bungag, Airport Public Affairs Department head, said the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) has welcomed the free rides, and thanked MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino and MMDA personnel for the shuttle project.
Tolentino said the temporary project would give convenience to passengers who take cabs and to others using their own vehicles in driving to the airport terminals.
He added that the departing passengers can go as a group by availing of the free shuttle services that the authority is providing.
Tolentino said passengers have only to show their booked airline tickets to the designated driver or the bus conductor to avail of the free services.
For the shuttle project, the MMDA has deployed six buses, including electric buses, with Baclaran (Pasay City) and the SM Mall of Asia (also in Pasay City) as pick-up points.
