The Mabuhay lanes are express routes for private vehicles aimed to help decongest traffic in the city. Illegally parked vehicles and obstructions along Mabuhay lanes can be reported to MMDA through Viber and Twitter.


WEATHER ADVISORY

Planning for travel or events should include measures for rains.

Rainy season is here, bringing intermittent showers in different parts of Metro Manila. Most rains can be expected in the late afternoons, with a couple of thunderstorms. It is recommended to bring an umbrella when planning to go outside because weather might abruptly change from fair to rainy.
