Anyone who rides the MRT daily understands the real pains of using this mode of transport, but here’s something that could mean better days are coming for regular commuters in the metro: Yesterday, October 15, saw the deployment of the new Dalian trains on the MRT line.
You can check out more details and some photos from the management’s official Facebook announcement below:
This is only the initial deployment of the new trains. As of writing, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) has clarified that only one train set will be operational, and it will only run from 8:30pm to 10pm daily until October 31. Apart from that, no further details have been divulged.

Surely, there’s a lot more work to do before the rehabilitation of this notorious train line is completed. Then again, small progress is better than none, wouldn’t you agree?
