Politiko rejects proposed transfer of bus terminals to Magallanes, to file SC petition


Albay 2nd District Rep. Joey Salceda said Tuesday that he will file a supplemental motion at the Supreme Court to stop the transfer of bus terminals from EDSA to a central transport depot near the SLEX-Magallanes interchange.

In a Facebook post, Salceda questioned the legality of the decision which was again announced by the Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade as a measure to address the traffic gridlock in Metro Manila’s main thoroughfares.

Pushing thru with the planned relocation, according to the Albay solon, would adversely affect thousands of commuters from provinces South of Manila.

Salceda had been opposing the measure since 2014 when he was still Albay governor.
