MANILA - The Metro Manila Development Authority said Friday it would provide free rides for commuters if necessary as it cracked down on smoke-belching and ill-quipped public utility vehicles.

Four buses and 3 shuttles will be deployed to make up for jeeps and public utility vehicles that may be suspended, MMDA spokesperson Celine Pialago said.

“Just in case, kung kakailangan po nila nandito po ang MMDA para magbigay ng libreng sakay,” she added.

(Just in case, the MMDA is here to provide free rides when necessary.)

An inter-agency body overseeing traffic management in the capital will determine when to deploy the MMDA vehicles, she said.
