LRMC renews partnership with Inquirer Libre, promotes reading to LRT-1 passengers
MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Light Rail Manila Corporation President and CEO Juan Alfonso and Inquirer COO Rene Reinoso on Thursday, February 21 sealed a two-year deal to allow the Philippine Daily inquirer to continue distributing Inquirer Libre at all stations of LRT-1.
“…this distribution of Inquirer Libre serves as our continuing effort to promote to our passengers the habit of reading”
With this partnership, LRMC remains committed to provide the riding public not only a safe, efficient, and reliable transportation but free and relevant newspaper every day to keep the passengers informed and updated of news and events happening around with the help of the country’s leading news source.
Alfonso said, “Aligned with the mission of our last Teacher’s Train where we dressed up our light rail vehicles (LRVs) to look like a library, this distribution of Inquirer Libre to twenty stations of LRT-1 also serves as our continuing effort to promote to our passengers the habit of reading.”
Inquirer has been distributing its free newspaper to LRT-1 stations since 2001. “We are very happy that LRMC has given Libre this opportunity again to be of service to the commuters,” Reinoso shared.
Both parties signed the agreement with LRMC Corporate Communications Head Rochelle Gamboa and Inquirer Libre Publisher Abelardo Ulanday as witnesses.
Aside from the free newspaper, readers can also access Libre on social media through facebook.com/Inquirerlibre, @inquirer_libre on Twitter, @inquirerlibre on Instagram.
