2015 Mabuhay and Christmas Lanes

November 11, 2015

 

What to expect of EDSA and generally being on the road with Christmas just around the corner? Why, increased volume of cars and more of the unmoving type of traffic, of course!

 

But that’s what Mabuhay and Christmas Lanes are for. Seeing that traffic worsens on and as the holiday season nears, the MMDA has made it a yearly practice to open alternate routes to decongest EDSA. This year, the MMDA has announced 17 Mabuhay and Christmas lanes that should take you to your commercial districts or destinations while avoiding the regularly busy and crowded stretch of EDSA.
