LRT launches "BO-BO", perfect name for the new service

the conclusion is that the LRT launched a new service, got page 1 coverage, that does not serve anyone and does not give anyone any benefit.  it is a classic for tHe idiOts proMo.
you may be having a headache now at this point. this new service is probably driving you crazy. well, we have one more to drive you completely nuts. take a deep breathe –
the name of the new service is “Bike-On Bike-Off ” which is of course a play on the now famous RO-RO (Ride-On Ride-Off) service that allows people to use their cars to go from one island to the next. commuters ride their cars to barges and rides it off them on the next island.
here is what will drive you crazy.  “Bike-On Bike-Off ”, the acronym for this service is actually BO-BO! hahahaha. a perfect name for a perfectly bobo service.
congrats to the LRT and the brilliant communication person who thought of this new service.

LRT allots ‘green zones’ for bikers

MANILA, Philippines—Bicycle commuters who wish to cut travel time while getting some relief from the fumes, noise and maddening traffic of Metro Manila now have a lighter, off-road option.

The Light Rail Transit (LRT) Lines 1 (Baclaran-Monumento) and 2 (Recto-Santolan) Sunday began admitting passengers with bikes in tow, allotting the last coach of each train for these pedal-pushing riders.

Regular fares apply in these so-called “green zone” coaches, but the LRT management is imposing certain conditions: The bikes must be of the “foldable” model and a maximum of only four bikes would be allowed per train.

To welcome the LRT’s “Bike-on Bike-off (Bike O2)” project, about 30 enthusiasts from cycling and outdoor clubs took the inaugural ride on Line 2, boarding the train at the Araneta Center station in Cubao, Quezon City, and getting off at the Legarda station in Manila.

The bikers were led by Sen. Pia Cayetano (an avid cyclist) and LRT Administrator Melquiades Robles. Also present during the launch was Environment Secretary Lito Atienza.

    Same debate in singapore.

    Although people here are more disciplined. but trains here are as crowded as our MRTs in the philippines during peak hours.
