MANILA, Philippines — The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board have deployed close to an additional 50 buses along the EDSA Busway Carousel to augment the vehicles plying said route — but only on a limited basis for the next few days.


Board Resolution 191 noted that it has been "consistently observed" that current deployment of bus units is below the required number, around 80% of the authorized units, thereby affecting the availability of service particularly during peak hours.


"The provision of these ‘rescue’ units have been discussed with the two bus consortiums already," said LTFRB Chairman Teofilo Guadiz III on Tuesday.
