NCRPO eyeing Libreng Sakay to ferry commuters amid MECQ in Metro Manila

National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Police Major General Debold Sinas is eyeing to provide free transportation for commuters amid the modified enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila.

"Maguusap ulit kami. Siguro nga i-consider namin kasi una massive respond deployment eh, dala 'yung tao namin sa mga ano, mag-readjust ulit," Sinas said at a press briefing.

"Siguro gagawa rin kami kasi noong nakaraang MECQ, mayroon din kaming Libreng Sakay as directed by the chief PNP," he added.

Under MECQ, which started today in the National Capital Region and other high-risk provinces, most forms of public transportation have suspended their operations.

Reports said some workers were forced to walk for hours just to go to their respective jobs.

The national government implemented MECQ in some areas after health frontliners asked for a time out to recalibrate strategies against the COVID-19 pandemic. — Anna Felicia Bajo/RSJ, GMA News
