Manila's 'trolley boys'

Postby David Benton » Fri Jan 11, 2019 12:11 am

"One way to travel in the Philippine capital, Manila, is by trolley. Passengers choose this unofficial transport service because it's quicker and cheaper than other options. For the homeless community that runs the illegal service, it puts food on the table. But it's also incredibly dangerous."
The video is shot on what looks to be a fairly decent rail commuter system in Manila .

The only train trips I regret are the ones I didn't take.
