Abstract

This paper aims to provide a comprehensive insight on road policies in Metro Manila by identifying the number of policies, distinguishing local policies, national policies, and republic acts, and lastly, determining challenges on road public transport in the area. Most people do not really take road policies as scientific issues, but the implementation of these regulations affects people’s lives as much as any other economic factor; that is why it is important to conduct research on how to make these systems better. The findings of this paper significantly contribute to resolving issues of traffic congestion, road accidents, and violations of road policies in the current Philippine transportation system, as well as to the improvement of the country’s economic productivity. Urban development assists growth and accessibility of cities towards transit mobility which enables urban areas to seamlessly increase travel within the area. Traffic congestion and long travel hours are unpleasant as it discourages future economic growth. The study observes the current road system in Metro Manila and draws conclusions that can be utilized for the furtherance of today’s policies, in a final goal to improve the overall urban development of the country.
