    1. This is indeed a very convenient way in fairness. I hope it will expand to the north for the sake of traveling easily :)O

    2. Yes, expansion of railways to the north will definitely help lots of travelers. Unfortunately, the plan of extending rail to Clark has been stalled. Too bad hehe.

    3. I Think these development programs are not to be stopped and can be done in other ways.

    4. @ Krishna. Yes, you are right. They keep on improving. As it is, there are more rooms for improvement :)

    5. It's good to know that PNR has opened a station in Ligao City. I hope the plan to connect the province of Sorsogon will materialize. This will help a lot of Bicolanos who are frequent travelers.
