The Pasig city government has launched a transport microsite in a bid to better serve its residents who avail of the “Libreng Sakay” program.
Pasig City has been providing free shuttle services to healthcare personnel, employees, and other front-liners amid the travel restrictions imposed during the stricter modified community quarantine (MECQ).
The transport microsite is seen to ease transportation issues of the residents availing of the free shuttle services from the local government.
“To help you find the latest announcements and other transport-related information such as biking, free shuttle service around the City, we are launching the PasigTransport microsite,” the Pasig City government wrote in a social media post on Sunday.
Through the use of the transport microsite, residents will be provided with current updates on the operating hours and bus routes of Pasig’s Libreng Sakay.
The microsite also contains guidelines on how to use bike lanes and pinpoint locations of public bicycle racks for parking.
It is also equipped with video links, photos, and other reading materials on the latest transport-related programs, executive orders and other city ordinances.
“Everything you need to know on one page,” it said.
Residents are also urged to use the microsite to report any transport violation found within the city.
Apart from this, residents can still track and monitor the routes of each Libreng Sakay Service shuttle via sakay.ph., a mobile-based application.
The local government has partnered with the ride-hailing service provider Angkas to provide free rides and barrier shields for the healthcare and other front-liners.
The Pasig Transport Office said the city is now compliant with the Department of Transportation’s memorandum circular No. 2020-014, mandating all passengers of public transportation to wear face shields on top of face masks effective on August 15. (PNA)
