He later on admitted that a "crisis in effective management" is plaguing Metro Manila's Light Rail Transit system, which ferries hundreds of thousands of commuters every day.

One day commute? Anu yon! Mag commute ka gamit ang jeep ha! At isang buwan ka mag commute. Tignan ko lang kung buhay ka pa. Mga peeps, huwag niyo ng ipagpilitan na may crisis. Hihirit na naman yang mga taga gobyerno ng emergency power. Only one Friday? Let him do it everyday until the end of this administration.

Panelo right after he agreed to commute. Dapat walang special treatment, fall in line if he needs to. If there's no line, diskartehan nya.
2 bagay lang ginagawa ko pag gusto ko sirain yung araw ko: 1. Makinig ng walang ka-kwenta-kwentang commentary ni Noli De Castro & 2. Manood ng Malacanang Press Briefing at makinig ng mga walang ka-kwenta-kwentang questions ng MPC kay Spox Sal.
