A public terminal is a place where busses, taxis, jeepneys, tricycles, and other travel vehicles were parked to catch and go to their destination with their passengers. The public terminals are also called bus stations or bus terminals.

But, why having a pleasant terminal is important? Terminals are used by locals or tourists to travel inbound or outbound. Most public terminals have food stores, food stalls, souvenir shops, and other establishments to give services and allow the passengers to buy their needs and necessities. On top of that, first-time travelers such as tourists wouldn’t be confused about where to take rides to go to their destinations.

This will also ensure the safety of the passengers and their belongings by riding into the vehicles that were on the public terminals than on roads or unto colorum vehicles. The colorum vehicles are private-owned vehicles that operate as public utility vehicles. They have no proper authority from the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), operating outside of its approved route or area without a prior permit from the Board or outside the exceptions provided under existing memorandum circulars, and could have unlicensed drivers.

Palawan has been on the list of the “Best Island Beaches” in the world Condé Nast 2020 and was on the 9th, along with Boracay in Manila that was on the second list. Most of the travelers in Palawan were an international tourist that wanted to visit and experience the places in the island. Traveling far can be exhausting and for some of locals and tourists travelers, a bus stop (wherein the bus stops for few minutes, the passengers could buy food or go to the comfort rooms on other bus terminals) is important.

On May 4, the public terminal in Barangay Punta Baja, Rizal, Palawan was inaugurated and ready to be used by the passengers. It is a covered terminal, which could help them to deal with rainy or hot weather. It is a P1 million project that was built from the 20% Developmental Fund of 2020 by the local government.

According to Municipal Engineer Ronald Lobaton in his interview from palawan-news.com, he said that the local government has prioritized the terminals that will be benefited by the passengers and local drivers.

“Ang covered terminal building na ito ay isa lamang sa mga nai-prayoridad ng LGU natin para sa kapakinabangan ng mga pasahero maging ng mga nasa transportation sector,” Lobaton said.

He also added that the LGU’s are having thoughts of adding terminal benches or chairs that will be used by the passengers while waiting for their vehicle to arrive, meet or fetch their relatives and families. The budget for the said project was on an arrangement by the local government.
