The Roads and Traffic Administration (RTA) is now finalizing a new traffic scheme around Carmen Public Market which would affect jeepneys and other public utility vehicles.

This information was gathered during a recent City Council Committee Meeting presided by Hon. Romeo Calizo and attended by RTA personnel and representatives of public transport groups in the city.

Accordingly, part of the proposal is to regulate the parking hinterland-bound jeepneys and trucks around the market. Sooner it will be transferred to the Westbound Terminal in Bulua. The RTA is also planning to impose a strictly ‘no parking’ policy around the market. New traffic signs are already placed around the market in preparation of the new traffic scheme.

Meanwhile, trisikads plying along Villarin and Serina Streets in Carmen will soon be removed as these are often the subject of complaints from motorists.

    Does this mean that people in Carmen have to go to Bulua just to go to Lumbia, additional cost and time, ka layo sa Bulua. Hassle kaayo ni para sa diha lang mana-og sa carwash, guardhouse, SM, etc.

      from bulua, the jeepneys will pass by carmen then to Lumbia.

        What about the road from Bulua-Canitoan-Upper Carmen. Perhaps long distane jeepneys like going to Baungon, Talakag etc can use it as a route to reduce traffic in Carmen

    Dili man mularga ang jeep kung dili mapuno. So kung sa carmen maghulat di jpn kasakay padung uptown not unless topload. Dyun ang mga ga mercado nga daghan gicompra labi na mga tigulang samut kaguol ky magpaload pa cla carga padung bulua dyun load npd padung lumbia. Anyway, unta makitan ni pamaagi na friendly para sa senior citizens ug sa students na jutay ra budget sa plite. Wala pd nko nklaro bah, knang no parking around the market, asa magpark ang mag mercado? Or strictly for drop/pickup allowed only?
