    Since the aforementioned date, the agency nabbed 30 unregistered and out-of-line vehicles in the National Capital Region.
  • Where are the vehicles operating?

    The apprehended vehicles were caught along C5 Road, Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard and other major roads in Pasay City.
  • MMDA Chair Romando Artes disclosed the number of vehicles seized by the agency following the inspection of the impounding area at HK Sun Plaza along Roxas Boulevard.

    The operations against “colorum” vehicles, Artes explained, were done after receiving reports from provincial and city bus operators that many provincial buses bypass the Paranaque Integrated Terminal Exchange.

    According to the agency, the apprehended vehicles were caught along C5 Road, Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard and other major roads in Pasay City.

    Meanwhile, Artes warned the companies not to engage in unscrupulous activities with traffic enforcers as it only gives a “false sense of security from being apprehended.”

    “We do not tolerate extortion, bribery, and other forms of corruption among our personnel or they will be dealt with accordingly. We will continue apprehending colorum and out-of line-buses,” Artes noted.

    For his part, MMDA General Manager and concurrent Deputy Chairman Frisco San Juan Jr. said that the agency will strengthen its efforts against PUV without proper franchises from the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board.
