Transportation guidelines for areas under MECQ

President Rodrigo Duterte heeds the pleas of our Medical Frontliners to return Metro Manila in ECQ for two weeks to give them time to rest and “recalibrate strategies” against the disease.

Duterte has placed Metro Manila, Bulacan, Laguna, Cavite, Rizal back to a modified enhanced community quarantine MECQ for 15 days effective Tuesday, August 4, 2020, amid the COVID-19 threat.

Transportation Guidelines in areas under MECQ

For areas placed under the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ), public transportation is not allowed, and some transportation services will remain limited.

If your residence is under MECQ, here are the public and private transports that are ALLOWED and NOT ALLOWED to operate.

For public transport, public shuttles will be allowed for frontline workers or those who will return to work in allowed industries under the MECQ, while bus, jeepney, taxi, TNVS, are not allowed. Tricycles are also not allowed, but with exceptions, subject to the guidelines set by the DILG and respective LGUs.

Under the rail sector, operations of the PNR, LRT-1, LRT-2, and MRT-3 will remain suspended.

For private transport, company shuttle is allowed to operate with passenger capacity of 50%, and a special permit from LTFRB for rented shuttles.

Personal vehicles owned by persons/workers in permitted sectors are also allowed, with two (2) persons per row.

Further, use of bicycle, motorcycle, or e-scooter by APORs is also allowed, with a maximum passenger capacity of one (1). Moreover, e-scooters are allowed, subject to existing traffic regulations.

The department, however, has yet to release any statement on wether it will change its guidelines for domestic and international flights.
