0 264

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has closed down nine bus terminals in Quezon City due to various violations.

MMDA Chairman Danilo Lim, together with personnel of the Quezon City Business Permits and License Office, served the closure order Thursday to:

1) ES Transport

2) Lucena Lines

3) Amihan Bus Lines

4) First North Luzon (2 terminals)

5) Golden Bee

6) Five Star/Pangasinan/Cisco,

7) JAC Liner

8) Philtranco

Lim said the management of these terminals have consistently violated regulations despite repeated warnings.

These bus terminals were found to be non-compliant in sanitary permit, locational clearance, fire safety inspection certificate, mayor’s permit for terminal garage and cargo forwarding, environmental protection waste management permit and violation of MMDA’s nose in, nose out policy.

He added the bus terminals should coordinate with the QC BPLO before they could resume operations.

Last July, the MMDA, Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board and the Quezon City local government ordered the closure of 10 illegal bus terminals operating along EDSA that were operating without permits. (PNA)
