For many residents from the East coming into Ortigas Center for work, the daily struggle of having to crawl through the Ortigas extension can be, for lack of a better phrase, a living hell. What once took 20 to 30 minutes in commute time can now turn into a two- or three-hour drive along the highway, with its narrow roads and the influx of jeepneys on it.
If you’re one of many that are affected by this frequent “carmageddon”, there’s now a better reason to keep your chin up: The Department of Transportation (DOTr) announced on its Facebook page that the Antipolo City government is launching a dry run of the new point-to-point (P2P) bus from Robinsons Place, Antipolo, to Robinsons Galleria in Ortigas, Quezon City on October 14 and 15.
This should convince commuters to leave their cars at home to decrease traffic in the area, and ride these buses instead, as the P2P buses have a fixed route, allowing for shorter travel time.
Hopefully this would go a long way in improving the traffic situation in the area!
Will you be trying the new P2P bus route? Let us know!
