SECURITY has been tightened at the Davao City Overland Transport Terminal (Dcott) as the exodus of passengers to their respective hometowns for Undas is expected to start Wednesday.

A dxAB Radyo Patrol report Monday quoted Ed Calvo, officer-in-charge of Dcott, as saying that they have coordinated with the Task Force Davao (TFD) and the Davao City Police Office (DCPO) to ensure safety of the passengers at the terminal.

The report also said additional troops from TFD will also be deployed at the terminal during the long weekend, on November 1 to 4.

The next priority of the Dcott management is the cleanliness within the vicinity of the terminal, especially in the comfort rooms.

The report added that some bus companies will have at least a 10-minute interval, instead of its usual time in order to accommodate more passengers.

These bus companies include Holiday Bus, Yellow Bus Line, ACF, and Metro Shuttle.

As of Monday, there were still relatively few people taking trips to the provinces at the terminal, some bus dispatchers said they expect the exodus to start peaking Tuesday or Wednesday.

"Ato na giprepare ang CCTV sa Dcott (We have already prepared the CCTV cameras in Dcott) to ensure the security," HRMO chief Erwin Alparaque said.
