Transport modernisation

The importance of transport modernisation in emerging economies is more important than ever before.

Commuting is described by many in south-east asia as the "worst part of their day". The reality of the situation, in most emerging markets, is that a large portion of a persons time is spent on travel to and from work or school, accounting for hundreds of millions of dollars in lost time.

Transforming Public Transport in the Philippines.

There is no topic in the Philippine urban daily life, that looms as large as traffic congestion. Anyone who has been to Metro Manila has likely witnessed the long commuting times and seemingly endless queues of passengers and vehicles. Many factors have let into this: rapid GDP growth, a large urban population and years of prioritising private cars over mass transit. With all the implications of traffic congestion on safety, health and security, the government has clearly stated the need to modernise the public transport industry.

In the Philippines studies show that the average Filipino spends more time commuting to and from work than working. Therefore, government initiatives in the transport area are key to growing the economy.

In Metro Manila alone, the current traffic situation translates to societal costs of roughly 20 billion USD annually (around 7.4% of the country’s GDP) or 51 million USD per day due to lost working-hours, additional fuel consumption, health costs caused by air pollution and loss of investment opportunities.
