Prioritizing women, PWDs, and the elderly in the RT-3 segregation plan

Beginning on Sunday, the Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3) will reintroduce a segregation policy that will grant senior citizens, people with disabilities (PWD), pregnant women, and those traveling with children exclusive access to the front two doors of the first vehicle.

The Friday notification stated that women might take the remaining first-train car space.

The second and third train cars are open to all passengers, according to the MRT-3 administration. “Ang ikalawa at ikatlong bagon ng tren ay bukas para sa lahat ng uring pasahero,” they added.

The segregation plan is back just in time for the start of the school year 2022–2023 on Monday.

When purchasing single-journey tickets from MRT-3 booths, students can take advantage of the 20% fare discount throughout the whole MRT-3 operating hours by providing identification cards or authentic copies of the enrolment or registration papers.

At 4:38 a.m. in Quezon City and 5:19 a.m. in Pasay City, the first MRT-3 trains depart from North Avenue and Taft Avenue stations, respectively.

At 9:30 p.m. and 10:09 p.m., respectively, the final trains leave North Avenue and Taft Avenue.

The Philippine National Railways and the Light Rail Transit Line 1 both use the same segregation policy.

To stop the spread of Covid-19, MRT-3 enforces the “seven commandments” in public transportation.

The MRT-3 must ensure proper ventilation, routine surface disinfection, and the exclusion of passengers who exhibit signs of COVID-19. Passengers must also wear face masks, refrain from chatting, refrain from eating, and adhere to acceptable physical distancing requirements.
