RLC turns over PUV terminal to Bogo

BOGO City’s new public utility vehicle (PUV) terminal is now operational, after Gokongwei-led Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC) handed over the transport facility to the City of Bogo last Feb. 28.

In partnership with the City of Bogo, the new terminal will serve as the station for several PUVs to provide comfort and convenience to passengers.

“This is just the start of more projects that Robinsons Land will undertake, which shows the company’s trust and commitment to the City of Bogo in contribution to the city’s dynamic economic growth,” said RLC regional operations manager Floramie Adolfo, in a statement.

RLC invested P80 million for the modern terminal. It houses different modes of public transportation such as buses, vans, jeepneys, and tricycles that bring passengers to towns such as Daanbantayan, Medellin, San Remegio, and Tabuelan.

The terminal has an area of about 3,000 square meters and is part of a 10-hectare property owned by RLC in the City of Bogo’s New Business District in Sitio Buac, Barangay Cayang.

The modern terminal has seven bays for buses and 14 bays for vans-for-hire.

It has an air-conditioned passenger waiting area, clean washrooms for men, women, and people with disabilities, as well as a terminal office and food carts.

Adolfo added the delivery of the terminal is just one of the many developments RLC will invest in the area. She said RLC will be putting up a mall that is a mixed-use development.

The new terminal was set up at zero cost to the City of Bogo and is expected to decongest traffic in the city. (KOC)
