A large percentage of people living in Metro Manila commute and take the jeep, bus, or train every day. These are the cheapest modes of transport, but just because they’re affordable doesn’t mean they’re convenient all the time. For commuters, every day is an adventure. Read on for 5 struggles every commuter faces. 

 1  Lines Everywhere 
Life is but a long line for commuters. From taxi stands to train lines, you can’t avoid a line, unless you aren’t being courteous and you disobey the rules. Lines are even more intense at the MRT and LRT stations to the point that they sometimes wind down the streets. From buying tickets to waiting at the entrance of the station to lining up on the train platform, the number of lines you have to be part of in a day are endless. 

 2  Inconsiderate Commuters 
When finding a ride or lining up for a train, we are all the same and no one is special (unless you are elderly or a person with a disability). It can be hard to deal with other commuters, especially when you properly follow the rules and random people cut in line to get to the front. It takes a lot of will power not to react to them, but still, remember to do your part by leading by example.

 3  Long Waiting Time 
The time you spend waiting for your ride can add to your overall travel time. What was supposed to be a simple 30-minute ride can increase to an hour or more if you include waiting. What’s worse is when you wait in line for a long period, only to realize you’ve been waiting for nothing. Such is sometimes the case for the MRT. Imagine waiting in line for about an hour just to reach the train platform, only to be informed 30 minutes later that the train broke down and that service is halted until further notice.
