The new General Santos City Terminal was finally inaugurated last week in a simple rites witnessed by city officials and workers from the transport industry,
Blessing the new building was Fr. Leo Acierto, CP who just planed in from the Holy Land after having been assigned there for three months. Fr. Leo who is Bariles’ closest priest was contacted by the Fishman himself after realizing that he is back in town for a sabbatical.
The new city terminal which costs the government P7.5million to construct is the second building inside the one hectare property donated by the Bulaong Family. It will be used by vans and jeeps ferrying passengers from Gensan to all over Region 12 and beyond. The first terminal on the other hand, is being utilized by bus companies.
The new Gensan city terminal building occupies almost 300o square meters lot beside the first one and is located near the exit of the compound. It also contains toilets for men and women and a space for an office.
Hopefully, after this, the perimeter fence surrounding the terminal compound will be constructed to make it more secure and the cementing of the roads going inside and outside its gates. Undoubtedly, this 2nd terminal building is a step towards the right direction in a city whose passenger traffic is growing tremendously by the minute.
