Fewer routes have been affected by the transport strike organized by the group Malayang Alyansa ng Bus Employees at Laborers (MANIBELA) on its second day, and remains to have no significant impact on public transportation operations.

In a statement on Wednesday, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) said affected routes on Tuesday went down to two from nine on Monday.

“The operations of public utility vehicles (PUV) and the flow of passengers are not significantly impacted by sightings of rallyists,” the LTFRB said.

On Monday, the LTFRB and the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority reported that the transport strike failed to paralyze public transportation in the National Capital Region, with free rides offered by national and local government agencies in affected routes.
