Malayo mararating! QC adds more routes to ‘Libreng Sakay’ program
The local government of Quezon City has added two new routes to its “Libreng Sakay” program for commuters as Metro Manila eases into general community quarantine (GCQ).
The city has tapped 14 buses which will ply two identified routes. These routes have been prioritized due to the number of commuters who became stranded in these areas.
The routes are as follows:
Route 1: SM Fairview – Q.Ave MRT
(via Commonwealth Ave)
Starting point: SM Fairview
Pick up points
– Atherton / FCM
– Dona Carmen / Don Fabian (Wilcon)
– Commonweath Market / Riverside
– Don Antonio
– Luzon / Tandang Sora (Puregold)
Drop off point: Q.Ave MRT
Route 2: Nova Bayan – North Ave MRT
(via Quirino Highway – Mindanao Ave)
Starting point: Nova Bayan
Drop off point: North Ave MRT
The program is available to commuters going to and from permitted establishments such as workplaces.
Assistant City Administrator for Operations Alberto Kimpo said social distancing and other health protocols are observed inside the buses to ensure commuters’ safety.
