Last week, MRT-3 management announced that the rail line will be temporarily ceasing operations this Holy Week to make way for scheduled rehabilitation works. Now, the LRT-1, the LRT-2, and the PNR have announced closures and adjusted hours, too.
In a Facebook post, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) shared the updated Holy Week schedule for the LRT-1, LRT-2, and PNR. Look:
“To give way to the thorough maintenance program being conducted yearly to our railway lines, please be informed of the following Holy Week Maintenance Activities that shall be undertaken,” the announcement reads.

Now, we don’t mean to sound like a broken record, but please don’t head out unless you absolutely have to. COVID-19 cases are still high, and there’s no indication that the situation will change any time soon. Stay safe, commuters.
