QUEZON CITY (DWDD) – Department of Transportation (DOTr) Sec. Arthur Tugade would like to revive the plan to install cable cars to ease the traffic situation in the country.
“I want the rate of the cable car more or less parallel with the rates of the jeepney, the bus, the taxi, LRT, and MRT. I don’t want a rate that is high so that, you know, the public can benefit,” Sec. Tugade said.
These cable cars will be initially installed in the Pasig area with a capacity of 35 passengers per car.
Apart from cable cars, the DOTr and the Asian Development Bank are also finalizing the details for the elevated “walkalator” to be put up along Pasig City and Taguig City. DOTr / MCAG
