Last week, MMDA General Manager Jose Arturo Garcia says even frontliners will not be exempted from the modified color coding scheme to be implemented on June 1, 2020.
Later on, he reversed his statement clarifying that health workers can use their vehicles even under coding without being apprehended. He also advised the front liners to maximize the use of carpooling.
MMDA General Manager Garcia said, if you want to use your coded-vehicles there should be two or more passengers for you to be allowed to travel following the guidelines from IATF. This was also backed unanimously by 17 city mayors during the Metro Manila Council (MMC) teleconference meeting.
This modified color coding scheme will only be during the GCQ.
Public Utility Vehicles
On the other hand, buses and jeepneys are still not allowed to operate.
Other means of transportation
Shuttles of private companies, TNVs and point-to-point buses will be allowed for those who need to travel to work but can only accommodate a limited number of passengers as social distancing has to be strictly observed.
