Decongesting the metro

The proposed plan to build bus terminals for the two major points of entry/exit to Davao City will contribute greatly to easing traffic congestion.

Putting in place terminals for bus transport plying the North and South arteries is a timely solution to the city’s nagging traffic woes. At the same time, it also comes in anticipation of the implementation of the public bus transport system.

This indeed is the way to go. The proposal will efficiently decongest the areas in the city where the buses pass through and where they eventually converge at the Davao City Overland Transport Terminal.

The single terminal for all routes have been working for ages. However, the city’s transport landscape has vastly changed. There are more buses plying more routes and the numbers are increasing in a steady pace in the past years.

Left unabated, the traffic woes caused by this old one terminal system may just be too much to handle.
