Calling all Pasig City residents: Your city has been identified by the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) as the bottleneck capital of the NCR.

According to statistics provided by the traffic agency based on feedback from local government units (LGU) from 2018, Pasig City is host not just to the most number of bottleneck areas in Metro Manila, but to the worst ones as well.

Analysis of questionnaires provided by LGUs show 30 bottleneck locations within Pasig City, with the majority of them being categorized as ‘severe.’ This includes areas along Ortigas Avenue, Meralco Avenue, Pasig Boulevard Extension, Shaw Boulevard, and Julia Vargas Avenue.

Other cities that stand out based on the MMDA’s data include Valenzuela City with 24 identified bottleneck locations, Quezon City with 17 locations, and San Juan City with 15 locations—all of which were categorized as severe. Strangely, cities like Marikina, Navotas, Caloocan, Parañaque, and Makati registered five bottleneck locations or less.
