This new rule confused many motorists.
Comments

On June 1, the first day of general community quarantine (GCQ) in Metro Manila, motorist plying the stretch of EDSA were surprised to find that the lanes on the roads have been flipped: The exclusive lane for buses is now on the leftmost lane instead of the rightmost.

Many motorists were unaware of the changes made, which resulted in traffic violations. The changes also caused traffic on EDSA because private vehicles were reluctant to use the old yellow lanes on the right side of the road, which was previously reserved for city buses.

Watch how the implementation of this new bus lane went in the video below, in which an exasperated MMDA officer is seen shouting and berating motorists on the new bus lane.
