Cebu Bus Rapid Transit
This is an artist reproduction of the Cebu Bus Rapid Transit, still in planning and the first phase will be operational by 2013. This is the alternative Mass Transport System applied to Metro Cebu instead of a more costly Railway line.
The system uses the same bus we ride now, but the difference is that an exclusive ROW is given to buses, and these buses can only load and unload at designated terminals and drivers are paid on a fixed basis and not on an abusive commission/boundary system we have now.
The BRT system is cheaper and healthier to operate than the conventional bus system and jeepneys as buses do not stop at every second to scout for passengers, they only stop at the terminals.
My Transportation Engineering professors talked about adopting the BRT concept in Metro Manila and other major urban areas in the Philippines but as I see it, this needs an Act of God to be implemented in Metro Manila.
