Test of Grit in the City

Metro Manila tested the grit of its mobile citizens this 24 March. A shuttle bus overturned in Sta Rosa Laguna constricting movement going North to the business center early morning. The mass transport system MRT along EDSA covered only half the distance reducing further its already overloaded capacity during the mad rush hour. Road and bridge repairs along major thoroughfares cut off critical road space inducing blockages. As if these were not enough, it rained in the afternoon. The options for mobility are decreasing but the patient and determined commuters can find a way: use of Maze, TrafficDito, mobile phone, walking, aggressive and offensive driving, combined use of transpo system are only some. Only the tough survives in Metro Manila. When you do, you can in any city of the world.
