Mayor Rex Gatchalian slaps nearly P500,000 fine on erring bus


Rex Gatchalian confronted the driver and management of Metrolink bus line after they were caught loading up on passengers without social distancing.

It took several tweets and a few hours for the Valenzuela mayor to summon representatives from the bus company after they were caught picking up passengers like there’s no pandemic around. Although gravely mad, the politiko gave a second chance to the bus company but fined them a whopping P462,000 for the gaffe.

“Valenzuelanos, please take pictures and send to me bus violations on social distancing. Help us police them,” the politiko added.
