Because of the very heavy traffic in Metro Manila everyday, MMDA is hoping that they can get these three wish list for the benefit of the commuters.
1. A four-day work week for government employees. One day less means less electricity and water consumed (they go to the toilet six times a day!), and every seat on the train and bus that they don’t occupy means fewer passengers queuing up, being squeezed in.
2. A staggered schedule for Ateneo and Miriam: 7 a.m. for high school, 9 for elementary, 10 for college. (Uh uh, this is okay until parents start buying an extra car to accommodate the new scheme.)
3. Car-pooling among friends, minus strangers with bad manners, body odor, criminal records. MMDA’s weapon is a new app that makes sure only friends get into your car.
