To the Management,

First of all, I'm very thankful that there's a third company competing against Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines. The presence of your company in the local aviation market is essential.

But I was disappointed by your performance. Because, you consistently provide bad service to your passengers. Let me cite some specific examples.

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Proof of Concept

Image
I first heard of this concept in Cebu City. At first, I don't really understand how it works. Now the Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) has released a video of the result of a comprehensive of the effectiveness of a BRT system in providing an efficient, relatively low-cost transportation system.

Here's the video.

To compliment the economic progress of he Philippines, we desperately need an efficient transport system. As you can see in the above video, Metro Manila traffic is worsening year-after-year. The BRT system can be the solution we need now.
