In case you didn’t know, the Philippine National Railways (PNR) is halting its Governor Pascual-Tutuban and Tutuban-Alabang operations starting March 28 to give way to the construction of the North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) project.

According to Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Jaime Bautista, the temporary closure not only aims to expedite the NSCR project by eight months but also to keep commuters safe during the construction.

With this announcement, the Department of Transportation (DOTr), together with the Land Transportation and Franchising Regulatory Board (LTFRB), arranged alternative bus routes to cater to passengers who will be affected during the PNR suspension. These buses will be dropping off and picking up passengers near the current route, ensuring convenience for commuters.

The southbound buses will travel through Divisoria (Tutuban), Mayhaligue Street, Abad Santos Avenue, Recto Avenue, Legarda Street, Quirino Avenue, Nagtahan Flyover, Mabini Bridge, Quirino Avenue, Osmeña Highway, Nichols Entry, SLEX, Bicutan Exit, Bicutan Entry, and Alabang (Starmall). The first trip going southbound starts at 7:30 AM, while the last trip will be at 9:00 PM.

On the other hand, the northbound buses will pass through Alabang (Starmall), Manila South Road, East Service Road, Alabang (Entry), SLEX, Bicutan Exit, Bicutan Entry, Nichols Exit, Osmeña Highway, Quirino Avenue, Legarda Street, Recto Avenue, Abad Santos Avenue, Mayhaligue Street, and Divisoria (Tutuban). Buses going northbound will begin at 5:00 AM, followed by 6:30 AM, 11:00 AM, 11:45 AM, 5:00 PM, and 6:10 PM trips.
