A major rerouting of jeepney routes will be implemented as part of a 60-day trial run to decongest traffic.
The scheme is based on a City Council resolution sponsored by Councilor Elstone Dabon which was approved last November 9.
According to Jerome Ursal of the Traffic Enforcement Agency-Mandaue (Team), the rerouting is still temporary.
If the scheme works, the City Council will pass an ordinance to make it permanent.
Ursal said it’s natural to get complaints from motorists in the first few days. Eventually they will get used to the changes, he said.
