Table 1: Areas of Improvement in Different Transport Modes in Metro Manila by Outcome Area (Mobility, Safety, Productivity, Civility) MODE OF TRANSPORTATION MOBILITY SAFETY PRODUCTIVITY In terms of negative conditions/features TRAIN (PNR, MRT,LRT) BUS coaches are too few and unsafe no defined bus stops lack of signages and maps lack of security prone to pickpockets unsafe stations - lack barriers for safety of passengers uneven gap between train and platform is not safe poor lighting facilities at the walkways unsafe because of reckless drivers defective ticket vending machines mainly limited to national roads Non-aircon buses are uncomfortable JEEPNEY longer travel time CIVILITY priority train is abused (even able-bodied use) not enough toilet facilities at the train stations Not very sensitive to the needs of, PWDs, senior citizens and women Absence of real city buses unsafe -- more incidents of hold-up and pickpockets there are also more undisciplined drivers who don’t use the designated loading and There are still many undisciplined commuters who do not fall in line (marami pa ring line, commuters ang walang disiplina at di pumipila) no mechanism for abusive and undisciplined drivers
  4. 4. MODE OF TRANSPORTATION MOBILITY SAFETY PRODUCTIVITY In terms of negative conditions/features CIVILITY unloading points; do not care about the safety of their passengers AUV/FX lacks terminal PRIVATE VEHICLES TRICYCLE BICYCLE irregular supply old model FX small space -very uncomfortable feels unsafe number coding is not a deterrent in reducing number of vehicles more traffic violations because of reckless driving No convenient terminal (walang maayos na terminal) Lack of cycling lanes, infrastructure like bike racks and office shower rooms can cause air pollution no privacy no insurance – presence of colorum plenty of road hazards like poorly designed drainage system and poor road conditions waiting is longer uncomfortable because of long ques not enough space fare is more expensive No fare discounts for students and senior citizens Motorist spend more time on the road rather than spending it with more productive work more private vehicle owners give bribe to traffic enforcers no fare discount for students and senior citizens in some Some drivers don’t follow rules eg. Driving in areas not allowed limited carrying capacity some bikers do not have discipline spitting Sweaty when reaching your destination - shower facilities; some bikers are not familiar with traffic rules -counterflow; biking on sidewalks Snacks become more expensive than transport fare
