Araneta Center Bus Station Tightens Security for Holy Week

With long queues of passengers expected to form at the Araneta Center Bus Station come Holy Week, the Araneta Center heightens security to assure a peaceful exodus for Filipinos heading to the provinces this Lenten Season.

“We will be augmenting security, with at least 20 more guards for deployment to secure the area. There will also be additional K-9 units effective March 27, Friday”, said Araneta Center Chief Security Officer Ernesto San Juan.

With security on red alert, additional traffic enforcers will also be assigned in streets surrounding the bus terminal to manage expected traffic buildup especially from April 2 onwards.

“We are currently coordinating with Station 7, LTFRB, DOTC, MMDA, and NCRPO. They will provide extra police forces throughout the Sabbatical. Security preparations in Barangay Socorro
, where Araneta Center is located, are also in place,” added San Juan.

There will also be a public service booth mounted in the area offering free blood pressure checkup, an emergency response unit, and a first aid station, with free call and charging stations, as well as free drinking water to the public.

All Araneta Center Malls, namely Farmers Plaza, Ali Mall, and Gateway Mall, even Aurora Tower will be closed on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday to make way for yearly maintenance work and will resume normal operations on April 4, Saturday.
