    Why is it that the LRT 1 station is only up to Roosevelt Ave.? Why not , up to EDSA, where it can connect to the MRT 1 system.? Too much politics or corruption is probably involve here. Imagine a passenger has to walk for about a kilometer to catch a ride to MRT 3, if they are connecting from LRT 1. Is somebody trying to solve this question?
