The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) is urging motorists to keep on patronizing the Mabuhay lanes.
It can be recalled that the Mabuhay lanes were tagged as Christmas lanes last month as they serve as alternate routes that help a lot on decongesting heavy traffic in Metro Manila.
MMDA sticks with its main goal of reducing the volume of traffic along major thoroughfares most especially EDSA.
The studies conducted by the Traffic Discipline Office suggest that there was an increase of travel speed along EDSA by over 14% during the past Christmas season. This is expected to balloon now that the holiday rush is through.
