MRT-3 deploys record number of running trains


    Metro Rail Transit line 3 deployed on September the highest number of running trains it has deployed so far.

    The Department of Transportation said 21 trains were deployed that day but MRT-3 reverted to 16 trains as of 1 p.m. on September 17.

    MRT-3’s maximum passenger capacity returned to 13 percent or 153 passengers per train set following the suspension of the 0.75 meter reduced physical distancing.

    MRT-3 recorded no unloading incident for the past three months or since the resumption of public transportation on June 1 under the general community quarantine and while on limited capacity.

    The last unloading incident prior to the enforcement of community quarantines was recorded on March 8, 2020.
