Filipinos are all too familiar with how hard it is to travel back and forth from one point to another. An average commuter who, say, travels from home to work spends hours on the road—time they could have used to spend with their loved ones or do something that they love. As people slowly return physically to their offices, expect to have the country’s roads clog up once more like they did pre-pandemic.
Time is an immensely valuable resource that unfortunately gets lost in regular traffic. This is why RLC Residences properties, especially the long-established ready-for-occupancy units, are standing in strategic locations, allowing commuters to be close to where they need to be.
Here are just some of the struggles and challenges that commuters experience daily and how these can be solved:
Torture by Traffic
Many Filipinos need to wake up, on average, about three hours before their shift starts, to fight through the traffic and hopefully, clock in on time. One of the roots of the unfortunate situation is that almost all public utility vehicles and private cars are headed to one place- the central business districts (CBDs). This is why living within CBDs can be a dream. For example, the residents of The Trion Towers in Bonifacio Global City enjoy more time to sleep and prepare for work as they are only a few minutes or steps away from the office.
Torment in Transportation
The Philippines has a long way to go before it can say that it has sufficient public transportation. MRT/LRT and other public transport ‘warriors’ literally shed sweats, tears, and in extreme cases, even blood just to get to work and start their day. What gives some an edge is that they arrive on the train platform or terminal earlier than others. This comes in handy for the residents of The Magnolia Residences in New Manila where the LRT2 line is accessible and they’re also presented with other options such as PUVs and metered taxis right along Aurora Blvd.
Even after surviving the heavy traffic and transportation hurdles, another challenge presents itself when walking on the way home as one may easily fall prey to unscrupulous individuals. This is why living in properties like Radiance Manila Bay which also serves as a direct drop-off point for public utility vehicles gives residents a regular dose of peace of mind. The well-lit and manned facade also helps in adding visibility in the walkways that keep residents as well as passersby safe.
Myth of ‘Me’ Time
Reaching home, most just take a quick rest before sleeping and preparing for tomorrow’s battle, leaving them without a moment for their family or even themselves. Investing in a property that can help you have more time to live your best life is definitely a worthwhile pursuit. Living near work lets people have more time for fitness activities such as jogging or outdoor sports in Radiance Manila Bay’s Outdoor Area, take a relaxing dip in The Magnolia Residences swimming pool, or enjoy a quiet time in the Library Lounge at The Trion Towers.
RLC Residences take into heart their brand promise of Raise, Live, Connect by ensuring that their residents live conveniently and worry-free as they live their best life.
“With the strategic locations of RLC Residences, we hope to give Filipinos more time for themselves and their families while helping them achieve their life goals.
