We thank Mr. Cesar Chavez for his service as Undersecretary for Railways of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and his commitment to find ways and solutions to the problems besetting the MRT-3 despite the odds and challenges. We wish him well and may he continue to be an advocate for a safe, efficient, and affordable transportation service.
I call on DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade to immediately step in and appoint Mr. Chavez' replacement, especially since the MRT-3 serves hundreds of thousands of commuters in Metro Manila every day.
The MRT is a vital component of Metro Manila's transportation network and we owe the commuting public an uninterrupted service to them.
