LIST: Routes for Robredo's free shuttle service for health workers

The office of Vice President Leni Robredo announced the return of its free shuttle service for health workers, as Metro Manila was placed under the modified enhanced community quarantine starting Tuesday, August 4.

A modified lockdown means that mass transportation would be suspended. Private vehicles, shuttle services, and active transport are the only modes allowed by the government.

The OVP free shuttle is only for health workers and frontliners. To avail of the free ride, a valid ID from a hospital must be presented.

At the station, passengers will need to have their temperatures checked and their hands sanitized with alcohol. They also need to register in a logbook before riding. Social distancing measures will also be in place.

The government has been easing quarantine restrictions when the Greater Metro Manila Area was placed under the general community quarantine.

Medical frontliners asked the President to place Metro Manila under a lockdown for two weeks, as rising coronavirus cases pushed the tally to over 103,000 on Sunday, August 2.

Metro Manila's quarantine status was supposed to be under GCQ until mid-August. This changed, however, after the President listened to the distress call of the medical community, but not without challenging them to stage a revolution for airing their criticisms over the government's coronavirus response.  – Rappler.com
