CLARK FREEPORT — The Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system has started its pilot operations in this freeport on Friday.
The BRT is free to the public for six months as announced by Clark Development Corp. (CDC) business development and enhancement group vice president Eva Tejada during the Clark Locators and Investors Association (CILA) townhall meeting held at the Quest Hotel recently.
Tejada said the BRT already has 10 buses for its pilot operation. “We will put loading stations near the offices,” said Tejada.
“Libre po iyon for six months para ma-experience natin how it will work (It will be free for six months so we’ll know how it will work). There will be a card already, tap on tap off nalang po tayo (we can just tap on and tap off ), Tejada added.
The BRT is seen to be an efficient mass transit system that will ease the traffic inside this freeport.
