    They carry more passengers and speeds up entry and exit with those wide doors. Plus its eco-friendly.
    They can also bring back the double decker bus. Imagine the effect by using it.

    Imagine a double decker bus being driven by those maniac Nova bus drivers, weaving in and out along EDSA traffic. Horrifying!

    ganun din yan... mga double decker bus their travel time would take longer... at syempre mag pupuno yan mga yan... then it would take longer time to load and unload passengers...

    kung nakaharang din sila sa kalsada or sa flow ng traffic... WA EFFECT YAN...

    MAIN CAUSE OF TRAFFIC... 1. Late enforcement of traffic rules and regulation... it should start at wee hours in the morning or before traffic starts to build up... mga tanghali na kasi kung idestino SA PWESTO... usually past 6am na...

    2. corrupt traffic enforcers--- because of lagay, they tolerate illegal terminals along the roads, vendors, loading and unloading on the middle of the streets and yung iba kotong lang ang iniintindi...

    3. VEHICLES that is blocking or slowing down the flow of traffic... especially PUV...

    4. IMPOTENT TRAFFIC LIGHTS-------- walang silbi....

    Aside from that, as drivers we should do our best to abide by the laws, and give way to our fellow motorists.

    I can cite several areas in my morning drive where driver discipline can ease up the traffic flow.

    Double Decker Bus ++ Terminals. Dapat point to point and loading and unloading areas. Specific ang route every bus. Dun naman sa mga malalapit lang ang pupuntahan, they have the option to ride a jeep/fx/taxi.

    Although I like double decker buses as it gives the city character, the most feasible ones would be this:



    Then bus stops are located 1km apart from Monumento to Mall of Asia. The bus must stop only at the bus stops. Each bus stop can accommodate two buses. It will utilize the right most lane and there should be no cars or cars parked on that lane. Bus intervals should be around 30 seconds to 1 minute.

    And most importantly, drivers are on a fixed monthly salary.

    Re. double decker buses. I think they will not clear some of our ill-planned road structures.

    I like the concept of having a network of tunnels, not just for vehicles or mass transport, but for pedestrians.

    I think some people will be all to willing to walk as long as it's not under the blazing sun or under monsoon rains. It's a wonder how a small city like Hong Kong can put up their MTR underground and have people walk to and from their destinations if there are several exits under one station.
