The LTFRB has announced that they will be scrapping their "flexibility rule", which allows provincial buses to pick up commuters in the metro outside of their official route. According to LTFRB chairman Anton Lantion, they're hoping that this will result in a reduction of around 700 buses from the metro's major thoroughfares and drastically reduce traffic congestion.

Unfortunately, there wasn't much meat on the article. Does this mean that these buses won't be allowed to pass EDSA and other major roads? Or that they can't stop to load and unload commuters outside of their official stations? Anyway, either way, this would still help, even if just a little. So, kudos to the LTFRB!
