    Ito nagustuhan ko walang traffic ah. Allowed kaya folding bike or yung electric scooter na ganito




    Isipin mo 30minutes hangang city of makati. Kung pupunta ako jan dito na lang kaysa magpakagagoh ako sa traffic. Abot kaya hanggang mall of asia yang carousel?

    Sana hindi na ginawa MRT puro dedictaed bus lane sa gitna mas ok pa wala gaano maintenance. Walang fix structure.

    Maganda talaga yung BRT Style Bus Lane na ginawa sa EDSA.... pero....

    The MMDA and/or MMC's failure to realize that the need to close U-Turn Slots to ensure and avoid accidents with the BRT Bus Lane/Dedicated Inner Bus Lane design should have been accompanied with re-opening major intersections with stoplights is beyond me.

    Obvious naman from the get-go na pag inalis mo U turn slots, tatagal lalo at maiipon yung private cars sa EDSA, unless yun talaga yung plano.

    Wala ako problema na isara na nila U Turn Slots as is na ngayon pero dapat kasama na kasi sa plano ang pagbukas ng major intersection stoplight tulad ng Roosevelt Congressional cor EDSA. Hindi mo din kelangan lagyan ng left turn sa stoplight dun. Pwede mo sabihan yung gusto pumunta sa kabila, pumasok sila on the previous right turn (in this example yun yung kanto ng Geely North Edsa kung from Edsa need mo makapunta roosevelt) at magroute sila to Congressional na makakatawid na ng roosevelt. Just an example.

    Kasi binago na nila yung flow ng traffic na before sa U TurnSlots, intention no stoplights/intersection.

    E ngayon wala na U Turn Slots, alangan naman walang intersection. You can't have your cake and eat it to. Mapipilitan ka ibalik ang intersection kahit papaano (di ko sinasabi lahat ng intersection buksan ulit - pili na major points lang na walang alternative para makatawid.)

    exactly what problem is the carousel bus lane solving?

    from what i understand,
    the carousel was initially proposed some time ago, but was dis-approved by the decision-makers at that time.
    it was approved only when the decision-makers were changed.
    this alone, suggests to me that the system is not as clear-cut advantageous as it is made to appear.

    if anyone here is a user,
    kindly enlighten me/us, the advantages this carousel bus system system is giving you.

    Yup, na shock din ako that some people are using it as transpo, nakasabay ko tumatawid ng tulay above Slex, and they're fast too!

    Honestly, gusto ko hulihin sila if wala sila sa bike lane or sidewalk because they are essentially just faster pedestrians and can't keep up with vehicles at all.

    I know government needs to further define, kahit by explanation and illustration lang what and where constitutes a bike lane for them to use along with continuous sidewalk clearing. Di na honestly kelangan yung todo todo road works just to clearly define it....

    Pag di sumunod by X month, hulihin pa community service na, ganun din jaywalking. Kung ayaw, kulong. Tapos usapan.

    Sa kotse/vehicles, respect bike lanes, pedestrian lanes and the "yellow box".

    The effect of both being followed will ensure as smooth a flow of traffic with our current infra and, hopefully, instill discipline. Dapat ituro talaga ito sa school bago maggraduate ng grade school para sila magturo sa tigas ulo nilang magulang at mga tito/tita.

    Magkakaroon daw ng Bus Lane "Flyover" sa congressional avenue para maka Uturn sa ilalim ng 'flyover" mga kotse sa ilalim ng Bus Lane sa Congressiona/Roosevelt? Di clear kasi walang pinakita na plano or map na reference man lang sila Pialago kung san banda balak itayo yung flyover na ito.

    MMDA pinag-aaralan na ang pagtatayo ng elevated busway sa EDSA - YouTube
