BOGO CITY, Cebu, March 1, 2018 – Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) formally turned over yesterday a new transport terminal to the City of Bogo.
“This is just the start of more projects that Robinsons Land will undertake which shows the company’s trust and commitment to the City of Bogo in contribution to the city’s dynamic economic growth”, said RLC Regional Operations Manager Floramie Adolfo.
“This is the first project we are undertaking but soon we will have a mall. It’s gonna be a mixed-used development.”
The terminal has an area of about 3,000 square meters, part of a 10-hectare property owned by Robinsons Land Corporation in Bogo City’s New Business District in Barangay Cayang.
RLC invested 80-million pesos for the modern terminal. It has 7 bays for buses and 14 bays for vans-for-hire. It boasts of an air-conditioned passenger waiting area, clean washrooms for men, women, and people with disabilities; it has a terminal office and an array of food cart choices.
Bogo Mayor Carlo Martinez said that the terminal serves as a “Symbol of a long-lasting partnership with Robinsons Land Corporation”.
“I am very proud to say that this terminal came at zero cost to the LGU. This is heartily given by Robinsons Land to the City of Bogo,” he added.
Although built by RLC, the terminal will be managed by the City of Bogo.
The construction of the new terminal is expected to decongest traffic in the city proper and make it safer for school children to cross the streets.
Bogo City is a fast growing city known for its sugarcane produce. It is a center for education, banking, trade and commerce in northern Cebu.
