BAGUIO City Police Office (BCPO) Director Jesus Cambay Jr., recently sought the help of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to install loading and unloading signs for buses.
Cambay, in a letter to DPWH-Baguio district Engineer Ireneo Gallato, said they are designating loading and unloading areas entering and leaving Baguio City to ensure the smooth flow of traffic in an area of more than 20,000 vehicles.
Among Cambay’s recommendations include passenger unloading of buses occupying Governor Pack Road at the PNR Unloading Area at daytime from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. to ensure smooth flow of traffic in the Central Business District, especially during rush hours.
Meanwhile, buses occupying Governor Pack Road are only allowed to unload passengers in the area at night from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. the following day.
Two slots for buses to unload passengers will also be allocated at the entrance of the Baguio Convention Center and the Baguio General Hospital rotunda.
Meanwhile, one slot for unloading of passengers will also be designated in front of the Insular Life building and at the back of Rizal monument.
BCPO Traffic Management Branch head Superintendent James Allan Logan on Friday afternoon disseminated the information to bus operators plying city routes.
Logan said they will enforce these laws to ensure the smooth flow of traffic often marred by congestions caused by motorists particularly buses and public utility vehicles violating loading and unloading areas for passengers.
