The City of Sagay unveiled on Saturday what can be considered the most modern local government unit (LGU)-owned bus terminal in Negros Occidental.

Situated in Barangay Poblacion II, the PHP156.684 million Sagay City Public Bus Terminal comprises a two-storey glass building and a parking space designed by Architect Wendel Duran.

¹“We constructed this to afford our residents, tourists and travelers a world-class bus terminal for a safe and convenient travel,” said Mayor Alfredo Marañon III, who led the inauguration as part of the city’s 26th Charter Anniversary rites, before he completes his third and final term on June 30.

The construction of the public transport terminal
was by the city’s development fund amounting to PHP25.684 million and a PHP131 million term loan from the Land Bank of the Philippines.

The state-of-the-art structure, which can accommodate up to 18 buses, features a radio frequency identification technology that will be adapted in its toll fee mechanism similar to that being used in the toll plazas of the North Luzon and South Luzon Expressways.

The 7,715 square-meter structure also has a
designated parking space for tricycles and mini-buses and a waiting area with a seating capacity for 220 people.

Some 28 closed-circuit television or CCTV cameras have been installed in the vicinity.

It has 21 stalls with two large rentable spaces, a metal detector machine at the entrance, and a telephone/paging layout plan.

The bus terminal is one of the landmark projects under the administration of Marañon, who has been elected congressman of the second district in the May 9 elections. (PNA)
