Presidential Spokesperson Sal Panelo is firm: Metro Manila is not facing a transport crisis but a traffic crisis, insisting that there are still available commuting options despite the longer hours which Filipinos have to spend on the road. He noted that taking public transport has always been a challenge, but it got worse over the years.

What is the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority's (MMDA) take on this statement?

Spokesperson Celine Pialago joined us on 'New Day' to answer that and to tell us more about the agency's plans this holiday season.
