MSU-Main inaugurates new buses

 Despite heavy rain and a nationally-declared holiday, the inauguration of the two newly acquired 60-seater MSU buses pushed through on October 16 at the MSU Convention Center.


“It took the discretion of Dr. Habib Macaayong to acquire new vehicles since the Mitsubishi Rosa Van in 1995," said OP consultant Dr. Rebekah M. Alawi, in a speech she gave during the event. 


According to Engr. Labimombao A.D. Macabando, Motor Pool and Water System Division Director, the guidelines of the bus usage are still the same as that of the van although “still subject to changes after the approval of the Academic Planning Committee."


For student educational trips, a letter of request has to be submitted to the Motor Pool and Water System Division three months before the trip to allow the processing of a special travel order from the Office of the President. Along with the travel order, the itinerary and gasoline slip should then be ready one week before the trip.


Schedule of the bus trips were also announced during the event. Every 6:30 Monday morning, the buses leave for MSU at Iligan Overton and every Friday afternoon at 2:30, it travels to Iligan. On Saturdays, the buses travel to Iligan at 8:00am and leaves for MSU at 4:00pm.


4th year Journalism student Cristita Canoy said in a text message that she is proud of the procurement of the buses. “I am hoping that these buses and the coming buses will serve its beneficiaries, the faculty and staff and most importantly, the students”, she added.


Meanwhile, Dr. Habib W. Macaayong gladly announced that more vehicles are coming for each of the MSU colleges and offices.
