Mercedes-Benz Shuttle Coaches
Recently, I saw a bus terminal for beautiful tourist-type coaches just before Forbes Park (coming from Makati City). Then, as we entered Bonifacio Global City, I sawShuttle Coaches going around Bonifacio Global City. The The Mercedes-Benz O 500 M 1725 buses are the newest fleet of commuter vehicles that ply the Bonifacio Global City-Kalayaan-Market! Market! route. The fare is P10 for a trip on the 6.5-kilometer route. Referred to as "coaches", the buses are said to be the same motor coach service in bus routes from London to Istanbul, using only the best fuel for buses which emits less carbon residue.
The new shuttle coaches have low floors and wheel-chair provisions, making boarding more convenient for career women and physically challenged commuters. The spacious interiors ensure a very comfortable ride with two-seater seats and wide aisle. The middle seats are placed sideways to create more room for those alighting to and from the bus. I learned that these coaches run virtually all day and night, from 5 AM to 2 PM the following day, with waiting time at the loading bays not more than 15 to 20 minutes, with at least seven stops during the 10-minute trip.

There are tricycles called E3s in Global City now. I saw one plying the street as we went to Boni High. Truly in keeping with eco-friendly policy at Bonifacio Global City, the E3 lessens pollution, compared to taxis.
