MANILA -- Several MRT buses were apprehended by Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) enforcers Wednesday for taking underpasses along EDSA.

In an interview with radio dzMM, MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino said the MRT did not consult their office before conducting a dry run of the chartered buses.

He said the MMDA is already in the process of fixing the bus system along EDSA which includes a ban on public buses along underpasses.

"Wala pong coordination sa amin na mayroon palang bus na padadaanin sa ilalim ng underpass. Eh huhulihin nga po 'yun dahil may existing regulation na bawal 'yun," Tolentino said.

He clarified that the MMDA supports the MRT's effort to assist train commuters but said they should have been consulted first.
