Danneedee Bobadilla and representatives from LTFRB, I-ACT, and bus operators, inspected the designated bus stops located on the inner lane of EDSA.

As we transition to the new normal, the team thoroughly inspected the structures, ensuring to speed up the construction activities such as the installation of steel railings and barriers, pedestrian overpass, at-grade crossing, and lifters for the commuters.
These designated bus stops will also utilize proper ingress and egress, as well as accessible crossings and pathways, most of which will be complementary to the existing MRT-3 station facilities for easier access especially to PWDs and senior citizens.
The EDSA Busways are dedicated and controlled lanes exclusively for accredited public utility buses. These are protected from disruption of other vehicles which then guarantees the safety of the bus drivers and passengers, and minimizes traffic congestion and delays. Thus, making public transport safe, reliable, and efficient.
