In the Philippines, the public transit network (PTN) is a major part of the countrys transportation system, and a vital part of its economy.
The PTN operates the country’s bus and metro systems, the airport, and many other major public transport and public transport-oriented infrastructure projects.
Public transport in the country is one of the most important sources of economic activity in the nation, accounting for about 60% of GDP.
Public transportation has been expanding in the region since the late 1990s, but the implementation of this expansion has not been seamless.
