MANILA, Philippines — The Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3) has finished the overhaul of…
The final 15 train cars will be updated by MRT-3.
As part of its rehabilitation operations, the Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3) still needs to rebuild 15 train cars.
It now has 57 trains that had been overhauled. The MRT-3 stated in a Friday Facebook post that these train cars were fixed and given new parts as part of the overhaul to get them back in working order.
The statement read, “These recently rebuilt train cars also go through a series of speed and quality inspections to assure their safety. Dumaraan din sa serye ng mga speed at quality checks, upang matiyak ang kaligtasan ng mga ito.”
The MRT-3 now serves up to 380,000 passengers daily, increasing the rail line’s capacity due to more operating train carriages.
The MRT-3 operates an average of 18 to 22 train sets at any given time, the majority of which are three-car trains with a few four-car trains after the thorough restoration of the MRT-3 was completed in December of last year.
Up to June 30, all of the stations on the MRT-3 have free rides available from March.
