Planning to travel across the city by train during the holidays? If yes, you may want to plan ahead because the Department of Transportation (DOTr) has announced that the MRT-3 will implement shorter operating hours during the Yuletide season.

In a post released on the DOTr's official Facebook page yesterday, the agency said it was implementing the shorter schedules "in anticipation of the low turnout of MRT-3 passengers" on December 24, 25, 30, 31, and January 1, 2017. Below is the temporary schedule:

*December 24 – 4:45am to 8:26pm

*December 25 – 6:30am to 9:50pm

*December 30 – 4:45am to 9:50pm

*December 31 – 4:45am to 8:26pm

*January 1 – 6:30am to 9:50pm

Will the MRT-3's adjusted operating hours affect your last-minute Christmas shopping schedule? Unless you don't mind taking a car and being stuck in deadlock traffic around malls, then the answer is probably yes. Again, remember to plan accordingly. Merry Christmas, guys.
