A. Intramuros to Adopt New Traffic Scheme
According to Mayen Jaymalin of the Philippine Star Updated May 24, 2012 the historic Intramuros may soon be closed to vehicular traffic to accommodate the estimated one million foreign and local visitors to the Walled City. Intramuros Administrator (IA) chief Jose Capistrano said they intend to adopt a new traffic scheme within the historical site in preparation for the projected influx of tourists in the area this year.
“We are adopting a so-called Integrated Parking and Traffic Management System which entails closure to motor vehicles of several streets to give way to increased foot traffic in the Walled City,” Capistrano said. From half a million a year, Capistrano said the number of visitors in Intramuros is expected to double or even triple with the new tourism package they are offering. Last week, IA launched the “It’s more fun in Intramuros” campaign that aims to restore the old glory of Intramuros.

Period automobiles share the road with rail-driven trams and masses of horse-drawn kalesas. The kalesa itself has been relegated into a tourist attraction, now a colorful curiosity rather than a public form of transport. Now cars share the roads with jeepneys, the epitome of Philippine ingenuity.

As a method of public transportation, the jeepney is also very inefficient. While its seating prioritizes quantity over ride comfort, jeepneys contribute to two problems plaguing Metro Manila today: pollution and chaotic traffic. Should the jeepney go the way of the kalesa? Definitely, the jeepney will become a cultural artifact, a tourist attraction, once public officials start
