“Kung maitatayo ang minumungkahi sa ating mga railway system, bababa ang presyo ng bilihin. Mas mura, mas mabilis, mas maginhawa, at makakaiwas pa sa kotong cops, at mga kumukotong na rebelde ang mga bumibiyahe.” – Pres. Noynoy Aquino

People need to move, seeking after life and livelihood. And the nation, represented by its government, and being made of people and communities spread throughout its geographic territory, must keep itself moving by connecting its people and communities.
