Railroads prepared to expand operations despite the transport strike
To lessen the impact on commuters in the general public of some groups of drivers and operators of public utility jeepneys (PUJs) on Monday, the railway lines are prepared to extend their excursions.
The Philippine National Railways (PNR), Metro Rail Transit-3 (MRT-3), and Light Rail Transit Lines 1 and 2 are among the railway lines that are prepared to expand their travel times, according to Transportation Undersecretary for Railways Cesar B. Chavez (LRT-1 and 2).
Compared to seven trainsets in August 2022, the PNR presently has 14. According to a notification from the PNR management, due to the transport strike, it will increase its operation by 14 trips today, March 6, bringing the total to 60 from 46.
He stated that it would increase service from Tutuban Station by one trip and move its departure time to 8:46 p.m. from 7:46 p.m.
Although being in normal operation, the MRT-3, according to Chavez, is prepared to extend its final trips from Taft Avenue Station and North Avenue Station to 10:41 p.m. and 10:41 p.m., respectively, if necessary.
Jacqueline Gorospe, a spokeswoman for the Light Rail Manila Company (LRMC), told the DOTr via Chavez that the LRMC is ready to guarantee service and manpower availability for LRT-1. The LRT-1 is operated under contract by the LRMC.
Regular LRT-2 service from Recto Station runs until 9:30 p.m. The final voyage will not leave until 10 p.m. if extended.***
