New MRT Line 3 coaches begin operations today




After announcing early this year that new light rail vehicles (LRV) from China were released for our use to help ease the lives of commuters, today marks the first day of their operations on MRT Line 3.

Today, May 7, 2016, Transportation and Communications Secretary Jun Abaya released photos showing the first trips and passengers of the new MRT Line 3 coaches. These coaches have begun operations starting this morning and, according to Philippine Star, are a part of the 48 coaches ordered from Dalian Locomotive and Rolling Stock Co. of China under the MRT-3’s capacity expansion project.

With this project, we are expected to receive four new LRVs per month (from March until January 2017) to get the 48 coaches total in order to move 800,000 passengers daily.

Has anyone of you tried riding it today?

    Siguruhin lang ni abaya na magiging maayos na at consistent ang maintenance ng mrt para gumaan naman ang sentensya sa kanya ng susunod na presidente. Malinaw naman na nagkaroon ng corruption at sabwatan dahil isang company lang ang pinabid noon at may rumors pa na may connection kay bolsy akino ang bidder ng cart supplier. Hiling ko sa susunod na prisidente ikulong lahat ng govt employees na mapapatunayang kurap tanggalan ng benefits at wag hayaang makaalis ng bansa forever. Kelangan natin ng tulad ni lee kuan yew na mahigpit magpatupad ng batas.

    Naiyak aku dun sa nanalo sa juan for all kanina. Gusto niya maging titser dahil sa bukidnon daw hanggang thursday lang may pasok ang mga estudent dahil pagod lagi ang mga titser. 2-3 oras naglalakad ang mga guro papunta pa lang sa skul at malalayo ang public services sa bayan. Wag sana tayung bubutante mga kababayan wag tayu papauto sa tuwad na daan. Pag nanalo si roxas at ang mga kampon ng dilaw dadami ang tulad ni abaya at abad na magpapayaman lang sa tax ng tao.
