Thousands are expected to report to work as businesses can partially reopen beginning May 16. Public transportation is still not allowed in Metro Manila, however, under the 'modified' enhanced community quarantine. READ:

Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque on Wednesday said public transportation, such as trains, buses, jeepneys, taxis, and Transportation Network Vehicle Service like Grab, are still not allowed to operate in modified enhanced community quarantine areas from May 16 to 31.

As more businesses are allowed to reopen, thousands of workers are expected to start reporting back to work. Roque said companies should provide shuttle services for its employees.Sa modified ECQ, wala pa rin pong public transportation, pero pwede po na mag-deploy ng shuttle buses ang mga industriya na ina-allow magtrabaho. Ang mga shuttle ay dapat ibigay ng kumpanya[Translation: In modified ECQ areas, public transport are still not allowed to open.

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Albay Rep. Joey Salceda said around 1.2 million workers from Metro Manila, Laguna, and Cebu City are expected to go back to work. In modified ECQ areas, authorities will allow the limited reopening of select manufacturing and processing plants, advertising, computer programming, publishing and printing activities, and TV, film, and music production starting May 16 to slowly open up the country's economy.

love how our government just assumes that our workers have their own public transpo! and that they can impose all these measures while they themselves don't follow it! and still no protocols for testing those that will be coming back to work, unless you're POGO! 😑😑😑💢💢💢

If ecq areas esp manila is eager to get to almost new normal status despite rising cases, us here in the other islands have no choice about it. but sana limited to no inter island travel. We worked 2 months to be zero or low count.

GCQ but with new nornal protocols and interisland travel allowed. Cant we just call it NOCQ ? GCQ should have strict border controls. Limited to no Inter-island travel with quarantine passes to discourage travel. NOCQ pa rin to nilagyan lng ng G para reaasurinG.

Napaka creative. Naisip nyo yang ganyang categorization? Classic.

Social distancing must be though roughly applied, even on travels. Bicycles are highly recommended, motorcycles doesn't applied social distancing for two. Regular four-wheel vehicle is risk.

60 and above 21 n below that bullshit Pagsikil n yan sa right to socialize Right to travel

40 hours 4 day work Puta yung iba 12 oras at 7 araw kulang n kulang p sweldo eh mga gunggong

Updates on provincial busses from the north please... thanks!

Sa ECQ may batas. Bawal mass gathering oh bawal mass gathering. Pero pag birthday mo at pulis ka, at wala lang sayo yung batas ng ECQ at kunwari nagcomply ka.. ay pwede na pala mass gathering.

Huh? No public transport under MECQ yet some sectors are allowed to operate? So, how would that be possible? ALL are WFM? Provision of shuttles? As if all companies allowed to operate can do such. Please someone enlighten me. I need answers. 😔

Ph Gov't to Pinoys fucked it either way we're doomed.

I hope people will be more vigilant and sensitive enough considering the fact that we still have elevating cases of COVID-19 within and outside the region. Keepsafe everyone!

Pkibigay kay b day boy🤣🤣🤣

Dont agree with Modified ECQ in metro manila. Counts are still high and LGU in general has not done a good job in containing /implementing lockdown.

What does public shuttle mean?
