A public transport strike on Monday, February 6, stranded commuters in parts of Metro Manila, according to reports culled by NewsCentral.Ph.

This even as the government has announced a suspension of the number coding scheme for public utility vehicles (PUVs) and deployed buses offering free rides.

As of posting time, some of the affected areas are Caloocan City, Mandaluyong, and Manila.

Jeepney drivers held a transport strike to protest the government’s order calling for the modernization and phaseout of dilapidated jeepneys.

About 400 jeepney drivers from the transport group Stop and Go Coalition are expected to join the protest.
