Pasadang Pandemic: The Impact of COVID-19 on Transport Workers

The first section of the paper contextualizes transport issues through a quick historical overview of the beginnings of public transport in the country. The main part of the paper looks at the scope and scale of the difficulties confronting workers in the transport industry amidst the pandemic, using a human-rights-based approach as a lens. Likewise, the paper will probe the responses and the agency exercised by transport workers and their organizations as they attempt to resolve these challenges. The paper ends with a set of policy recommendations founded on the transport workers’ own demands for the redress of grievances.
