It took a while, but it looks like the LRT-2 East Extension will officially be inaugurated soon. After some delays—mainly due to the COVID-19 pandemic—the new train stations in Marikina and Antipolo will finally be operational. Surely, this is something commuters can be excited about.

Now, just a few days before the grand opening, the Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) has shared the approved fares for the entire train line. According to the official matrix, a train ride from Recto to either Marikina or Antipolo (and vice versa) will cost P30 for single-journey tickets and P26 for stored-value cards (Beep cards).
