MANILA – Two more routes were added to the free shuttle service for health workers in Metro Manila, with a total of 16 routes as of Tuesday on the second week of the enhanced community quarantine in the entire Luzon.
“Mula sa dating 3 ruta noong nagsimula ang programa 18 Marso 2020, naging 16 ruta na ito. Ibig sabihin, mas marami pang health workers ang maseserbisyuhan ng inisyatibo ng departamento (From the three initial routes since the program began on 18 March 2020, it now has 16 routes. This means more health workers will be assisted by the department’s initiative),” the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said in a Facebook post.
According to the DOTr, the 15th route would have its pickup and transfer points at the SLEX Sucat Exit and Baclaran Market.
It will cater to health workers who would need to be dropped off or picked up at the Medical Center-Parañaque, Unihealth-Parañaque Hospital and Medical Center, Olivarez General Hospital, The Premier Medical Center, Pasay City General Hospital, Adventist Medical Center, and the Philippine General Hospital.
The 16th route, meanwhile, will have its pickup and transfer points at SM City San Mateo, the BFCT East Metro Transport Terminal along Marcos Highway, and Robinson’s Galleria.
The route would pass through the San Mateo Medical Center, St. Vincent Hospital, Immaculate Conception Hospital, Marikina Valley Medical Center, Amang Rodriguez Memorial Medical Center, St. Anthony Medical Center, Quirino Memorial Medical Center, and The Medical City in Ortigas.
