LOOK: Traffic situation in Metro Manila

 

Traffic jams are back in Metro Manila as more people and vehicles fill the streets on the first day of the general community quarantine (GCQ) on Monday. A long line of commuters was seen on different stations of the LRT lines 1 and 2 and the MRT. A huge number of commuters patiently flag down available public utility vehicles (PUVs). Some try to hitchhike to reach their destinations. Heavy traffic was observed in Roxas Boulevard and EDSA during the morning and evening rush hour. A high number of vehicles was also seen along Rizal Avenue in Manila. While PUVs were allowed to operate under GCQ, passenger jeepneys are still banned on the streets. In Antipolo City, Officers of the Land Transportation Office apprehend jeepney drivers who tried to ferry passengers to Marikina.
