As the transport strike began on Monday, July 24, several local government units (LGUs) in Metro Manila stepped up to offer free rides to passengers who might be stranded within their jurisdiction due to the demonstrations.

The strike, scheduled to last until Wednesday, July 26, coincides with President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.'s second State of the Nation Address (SONA).

Here's the list of free rides offered by Metro Manila local government units:
