The Metro Rail Transit 3 (MRT-3) had initially announced that it would suspend operations from October 31 to November 2, so that maintenance works could be carried out. The scheduled suspension, however, will be postponed due to approaching Typhoon Rolly, the Department of Transportation said on Friday, October 30.
“Magbibigay ng anunsyo ang pamunuan ng MRT-3 kung kailan matutuloy ang weekend shutdown,” the DOTr said.
“Sa kabilang banda, magpapatuloy ang operasyon ng mga tren sa mainline bukas [October 31] hanggang Lunes [November 2].”
Beginning this month, more people have been allowed to ride the MRT, the LRT, and the PNR as part of efforts to boost the economy. Passengers are required to wear face masks and face shields, observe physical distancing, and refrain from talking while traveling.
