Partners in progress: Vico Sotto meets with transport stakeholders
Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto recently met with stakeholders in the transportation sector to update them about the city’s projects.
In a Facebook post, Sotto said among the topics discussed in the meeting were: planning for public transport central terminal, the anti-colorum task force, loading and unloading zones in areas with bike lanes, and contact tracing via QR codes.
Sotto said it was important to engage transportation stakeholders in improving the flow of traffic in Pasig.
“Every single year since 19–, traffic has increased in NCR. Sa Pasig, umunlad ang siyudad nang hindi naplano ang sistema ng transportasyon. Bilang isang pass-through city at gateway ng Eastern Metro Manila, ramdam na ramdam natin ito,” he said.
“Bagama’t mahalaga din ang mga bagay katulad ng tamang enforcement, long-term na pagaayos ang kailangan – lalo na sa pampublikong transportasyon. A strong, organized, and disciplined public transport sector will play a crucial role in this,” Sotto added.
