First Trial for 2008

Today, Wednesday January 2, 2008... my first day of office for 2008.

I know it would be a busy day for me so I already prepared myself. As I entered the KCITS premises,I've noticed something is wrong with our operation. As expected a lot of passengers is flocking inside the terminal, what makes it weird there were no bus inside KCITS. Hmmmm.... it's not good, really not good for the start of the year.

Weena Bus Company, pull-out their units inside the overland terminal and temporarily makes the hi-way as their bus stop station.I just want to share something why it happened.

Last December 31, 2007, the KCITS management issued a notice approved by the Local Chief Executive to implement the approved 2006 Ordinance for fixed collection of rates and charges in regards with the operation of the ITS starting January 1, 2008.From the old rate of P10.00 per parking it would be increase to P30.00 as indicated in Kidapawan City ITS Code approved by the Sangguniang Panlungsod. The Weena Bus Line don't want to pay such amount so they decided to stay outside the terminal. This situation created a lot of problem in our part not because were worried that they will not gonna operate in our place but most of all our concern was the commuting public who are expecting a nice accommodation for their trips back home from a long break.

Our big bosses, had an emergency meeting as early as 8:30 in the morning, discussing possible alternatives just to accommodate all the stranded passengers. A lot of option was done, but still cannot accommodate the numbers of commuting public arriving the premises. I received left and right calls from concerns citizens as well as from the city local radio stations..... which one of their reporter is indeed inconsiderate ( i hated him whew.... he does rises my temper). North, South,East, West instructions was given to me and then i personally feed it to the staff for proper action. A lot of drama occurs, wherein another bus line will rescue and very much willing to operate in replacement of the striking weena bus line....

whew, after 3 hours of negotiation, everything was back into normal....... weena bus line came back to the ITS and agrees to pay the rate charge to them.... whatta.... whatta.....hehehehhehe... in vernacular dialect..... anak ng teting hehehehe....

Anyways, thanks we've surpass the 1st trial in our operation..... one down more to go heheheheh....
