  • LIST: Modern PUJ and City Bus Routes in Metro Manila Post ECQ
  • During the implementation of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in Metro Manila, the operations of all modes of public transportation were temporarily halted to limit the movement of people in the efforts to slow down the spread of the virus. Now that Metro Manila has transitioned to a less stringent form of quarantine, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) has come up with “a partial, gradual, calculated, and in phases approach in providing mobility to commuters” to be carried out as public transportation resumes.

    According to the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), there are two phases in the implementation of the said approach:

    • Phase 1 (June 1 to 21) – operations of rail lines, bus augmentation system, taxis, and Transport Network Vehicle Services (TNVS) have resumed; new rationalized city bus routes have opened, some local government units (LGUs) have allowed tricycles to operate
    • Phase 2 (June 22 onwards) – other modes of transport are gradually being allowed to operate, modern PUVs commenced operations

    With that, here is a list of modern PUJs and city bus routes traversing Metro Manila and other nearby areas that are now open for the public.

    As part of existing health protocols, modern PUJs have to make use of cashless modes of payment for fare and provide a disinfecting foot bath for passengers to use before boarding the vehicle. All passengers and drivers/operators must also wear face masks at all times and observe physical distancing inside the jeepney. Further, the passenger load must not exceed 50% of the jeepney’s sitting capacity (excluding the driver and conductor).

    City Buses

    There are now a total of 31 rationalized city bus routes operational in Metro Manila. Refer to the post below to view the complete list.

    Just like in modern PUJs, operators and drivers must strictly follow the protocols indicated in Memorandum Circular No. 2020-018 of LFTRB. These include wearing of face masks and gloves, disinfecting of units before and after every trip, installation of non-permeable and transparent barriers, and observing the correct passenger seating capacity.
