infrastructure OF TAYTAY, RIZAL
Taytay is currently implementing the strict ordinance regarding Proper Waste Disposal and Segregation. The Local government is also very active on the de-clogging activities, especially in the flood-prone areas.
Taytay has an existing road network with a total length of 139.666 km. The two main roads cutting through Taytay and serving as the main access from Metro Manila are Rizal Avenue which leads to the Poblacion and the Central Business district of the town and the Manila East Road connecting from Ortigas Avenue Extension which passes north and north-east of the town center. The roads meet at a junction just off the location of the New Taytay Public Market towards the adjacent town of Angono on its eastern boundary.
Before World War II, Taytay had a railway system service known as the Antipolo Line. This railroad line passed through Santa Mesa, Mandaluyong, Pasig, and Cainta, going all the way up to Antipolo near the Hinulugang Taktak Falls. Apart from a street named "Daangbakal" in Antipolo, no traces of this railway line survived especially in Cainta and Taytay areas.
Currently, the local government is building new roads like the Highway 2000 and C-6.
Today, the town's main mode of transportation are tricycles, jeepneys, taxis, buses, and UV Express services, linking the town to Metro Manila where many of the town's citizens work and study.
The provision of efficient power services is the linchpin of productivity. Any area that envisions itself to have modernize, productive and competitive needs to have ample power supply in order to engine its growth and development.
It has been recorded that Taytay is the third largest user of electricity among the towns of Rizal, which all have been served by MERALCO, making it a town with sufficient power for domestic use. Added to this is the presence of a substation of the National Power Corporation in Barangay Dolores.
Communication is another major key infrastructure component. Its ample availability in an area is one of the essential requisites for economic progress and social integration.
Currently, majority of the communication needs of the people of Taytay are being served by the giant networks like Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT), Globe Telecom, Smart Communications and other communication providers.
In line with this, the town is concurrently creating major innovation in internet communications by polishing the Free Wi-Fi Proposal of Globe and Pinoy Telekom on some strategic sites.
Taytay can be reached by all radio and television stations, printed communications such as newspapers and magazines that are also distributed in Metro Manila.
