Mayor Osmeña eyes transpo, telecom solutions for Cebu’s upland barangays


Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña is seeking to improve transportation and telecommunication services in the Queen City of the South’s upland barangays.

The Cebu poliko said he is eyeing a free shuttle service for college students from the mountain parts of the city.

Osmeña said he wants the shuttle service to begin operations next year.

He also said he has been meeting with telecommunication companies to improve the cellphone signal in the upland barangays.

Osmeña said he will not grant cell site permits to telecom firms unless they put up cell sites in upland barangays first.

“There’s so many application, I think about 30 applications for cell sites in Cebu City. I said nothing will do until they do the mountain first,” he said.
