LRT-1 now operates with 96 light rail vehicles
One year since assuming the operations and maintenance of LRT-1, private operator Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) has rehabilitated and increased the number of running light rail vehicles (LRVs) to 96 as of end November 2016. LRMC took over the operation and maintenance of the system last September 2015 with only 77 functioning LRVs. Through the work of its engineering team, LRMC was able to restore almost 20 more LRVs, while waiting for the procurement and arrival of 120 more LRVs in 2018. The increased capacity has enabled LRT-1 to accommodate more passengers and deploy up to 30 trains daily.
