Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte shows to media and then makes a short inspection one of the buses that will be used for the LGUs Bus Augmentation Program, rolled out today (Monday) with eight routes to help beef up public transportation in the city.
The updated routes are Quezon City Hall-Cubao, Quezon City Hall-Litex/IBP Road, Welcome Rotonda-Aurora Blvd/Katipunan, Quezon City Hall-General Luis, Quezon City Hall-Mindanao Avenue/Quirino, Quezon City Hall-Gilmore, Quezon City Hall-C5/Ortigas Avenue Extension and Quezon City Hall-Munoz.
According to City Administrator Michael Alimurung, the program will be open to the public during its initial run, but it will eventually require passengers to present the soon-to-be-released QCitizen ID Card. (AI/FC/MTVN)
