'Pasensiya na po': Palace says jeepneys still not allowed in GCQ areas
In a Laging Handa press briefing, presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said it would be difficult to practice physical distancing inside jeepneys.The ubiquitous Filipino public transport are so designed that passengers sit close to each other side by side and face those seated on the opposite row.
“Pasensiya na po sa ating mga kapatid na namamasada ng jeepney. Pero pinag-aaralan pa po paano magkaroon ng social distancing sa ating mga jeepney,” he said.(I would like to apologize to our jeepney drivers. But we are still studying how social distancing can be implemented in jeepneys.)
Under relaxed rules to take effect in the next two weeks, train and bus augmentation units, taxis, ride-hailing cars, point-to-point buses, shuttle services and bicycles will be allowed to operate in a limited capacity.The Department of Transportation (DOTr) will also allow tricycles to operate subject to the approval of local government units, while provincial buses are still barred from entering Metro Manila.
This as the capital region, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Central Visayas, Pangasinan province, Davao City and Zamboanga City shift to GCQ on Monday. The rest of the country will be under modified GCQ. For the second phase in the public transport shift, which will run from June 22 to June 30, public utility buses, modern jeepneys and UV express vans will be allowed to operate, on the condition that people wear masks and observe social distancing.
“Ang mga jeepney po kasi ay harapan so napakahirap magkaroon ng social distancing,” Roque said.(In jeepneys, [passengers] face each other so it is difficult to observe social distancing.)He said the country’s coronavirus task force was thoroughly studying how jeepneys could return to the road. Thousands of drivers lost livelihood because of transport restrictions under the lockdown.
A group of jeepney drivers has opposed the decision, saying the government was using the pandemic to phase out traditional jeepneys.Transport group Piston earlier said there were 500,000 jeepney drivers and 200,000 small jeepney operators affected by the lockdown.Read more: ABS-CBN News Channel »
si VP Leni lang ang makakapagligtas ng ating bansa. She will be the greatest president the universe has ever seen. She will stop this pandemic, as well as wars and global warming, using her pure heart 🙏 Napakatanga ng mga tao sa govt mag desisyon, buti sila may mga sasakyan papapasikin nyo mga tao sa work pero walang masakyan.
Someone from the govt said that health and safety is the priority this time and not the comfort and convenience of the passengers. What about the word 'BALANCE?' Shifting to GCQ without a concrete plan for everyone So how will the poor and average income filipino workers go to work? Ride a taxi? Jeepney drivers not having income for nearly 3 months - Do you know what an empty table looks like? What about an empty stomach sounds like?
Hindi niyo pa din papayagan pero yung cash aid ititigil niyo na this month? tang ama! Napanood ko sa balita yung mga jeepney drivers daw ipapasok sa mga build build build projects ng gobyerno Mas matindi pa s covid ang tumama s mga utak ng gobyeno hehehe Nakakain ba ang pasensya?The govt said no more cash aid since we're in gcq. What are the prospects for jeepney drivers?
Paano ho kami papasok sa trabaho? dagdag byahero, pero walang dagdag byahe... ano, maglakad na lang o makipagmatagalan ang tao kasama ang mas marami pang tao sa paghihintay ng masasakyan? Good luck sa social distancing😡 Pacensya will not bring food to their table. Hnd po nkakain ang pasensya, Killing them softly.. just tell them your dead..
Not YET, not for now. there i fixed it for ya. It make sense. So it is perfectly ok.
