No matter how much we love the Metro because of its urbanized and convenient setting, we cannot deny that the traffic system here kind of (for lack of better term) sucks.


We are not surprised that these commuters have epic transportation fails. So epic, in fact, that you wouldn’t know whether to laugh or feel sad for them. Either way, these stories are experiences that will surely take a long time before they forget.


"Nung college, kapag kolorum 'yung sinasakyan ko, kapag nahuli, pabababain kami. Kung matapang naman 'yung driver, kung saan saan kami magsusuot pero bago pa ko makarating sa school, tapos na 'yung first period."
-Gilbert, 31


"Nasa jeep ako tapos nagte-text ako kay Papa na magpapasundo ako. Nung magbabayad na ako, imbis na ‘bayad po’, ‘Mama, pasundo po’ tuloy yung nasabi ko."
-Jirah, 20


"Wala namang malala. Pero once nagsabi ako ng ‘pabili po’ sa driver."
-Levi, 22


"'Di ko alam 'yung sasakyan kong bus. Basta sumakay lang ako kasi antok na antok na ako. Paggising ko, nasa Alabang na ako eh sa Bicutan ako dapat pupunta. Mali pala 'yung nasakyan ko."
-Rovi, 23


Nagkauntugan kami nung katabi ko sa bus habang natutulog. Nagkatinginan kami tapos natulog ulit.
-Shara, 22


Naiwan ako ng flight. Nagpabandying-bandying ako kasi akala ko maaga pa. ‘Yun pala six minutes late na ako sa flight ko at hindi na ako pinapasok kasi closed doors na. Wala akong choice kundi magpare-book.”
-Mark, 30


Inabot sa ‘kin ‘yung sukli tapos nag-cellphone na ako. Tapos binayad ko ulit ‘yung sukli ko tapos na-realize ko na lang pagbaba.
-Matt, 21


We know these stories are more than relatable, especially to those who brave the Metro Manila traffic every rush hour. If you have a commuting fail story to tell, let us know!
