  1. That is why there is the dire need to increase the amount of fare. It has been too long that this entity is being abused. And it is being allowed to happen by not doing anything about although it is known what needs to be done. The government can not afford it nor does it have the will to make the change.

    Meanwhile, it is a loss-loss situation.

    Let’s all meet halfway at makibahagi tayo sa ikakalutas nito; Juan dela Cruz, magdagdag ka ng pamasahe; LRT ayusin mo ang serbesiyo. DOTC ipatupad ang kinakailangang pagbabago. Malakanyang tama na ang papogi – kailangan na itong mangyari ngayon.
