Locsin agrees with Panelo: Metro Manila has no transport crisis but has traffic problem


Another Cabinet member believes that Metro Manila is not plagued with a mass transportation crisis.

Echoing the comments of Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo, Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. said the nation was actually dealing with a traffic problem, not a mass transit crisis.

Locsin made the comment after Panelo accepted the challenge to commute to work to experience the horrors of everyday ordeal of commuters.

“No problem for him. I’d be honored to accompany the only guy who defends the President. He was just saying there is no ‘transport’ crisis, there are enough rides; in fact too many but there are too many who need rides but that’s not a transport problem—that’s THE TRAFFIC PROBLEM,” Locsin tweeted.
