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).
Across the board, there will be slight differences in fares going to either station depending on the route. For a clearer look, you can check out the said fare matrix below:
The Antipolo City local government also recently shared photos of the new station. You can see more photos here:
The LRT-2 East Extension is expected to reduce travel time between Manila and Antipolo to just 40 minutes. Once operational, the new stations are expected to increase the LRT-2’s total capacity by up to 80,000 passengers per day. Looking forward to using the extended rail line, commuters?
