Here’s what you need to know about the public transportation restrictions during this heightened alert period.
To minimise interaction and the risk of COVID-19 transmission during commuting, the Land Transportation Authority is implementing stricter measures during the Phase 2 period from May 16 to June 13.
Taxis and private hire cars may only carry a maximum of two passengers unless they are from the same household. For example, a parent can travel with their two children if they live together. But three co-workers who go home to different residences can not ride the taxi together.
Commercial car-pooling services are not allowed for the duration of Phase 2, including GrabHitch and RydePool. Non-commercial car-pool is allowed among friends or colleagues for no more than two people.
Drivers and passengers must wear face masks at all times, whehter on trains, buses, taxis, or private-hire cars.
Commuters are advised to travel during off-peak periods or spread themselves out.
