5 April 2021, Manila, PHILIPPINES – Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) has secured a safety certification from a reputable international testing facility that the LRT-1 can now lift the restriction of 40 kilometers per hour (kph) and safely run at a faster speed.
The LRT-1 will run at a maximum speed of 60 kph beginning 5 April 2021 as LRMC has completed all relevant improvement activities needed for the 36-year-old railway system. This will result in a shorter trip time from Baclaran to Balintawak (vice-versa) and increase the daily number of trips made by LRT-1 trains. The reduced travel time will allow passengers to reach their destinations in the soonest possible time.
28 March 2021, Manila, PHILIPPINES – In support of the government’s announcement of Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in Metro Manila, the Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) will implement a new schedule for the last train service on March 29 and 30, 2021.
LRT-1 will be operating from 4:30AM until 9:30PM (Northbound) and until 9:45PM (Southbound) on March 29 – 30. The adjusted schedule for the last train is in consideration of the government’s curfew from 6PM – 5AM and will allow LRT-1 Operations personnel to prepare and travel home safely.
Every year around the world, March 8 is celebrated as the International Women’s Day serving as a tribute, a platform, and a call for concrete, sustainable, and inclusive actions towards gender equality. At the height of the global pandemic, many women frontliners bravely took on the challenge of playing important roles in helping the country navigate through the new normal. Displaying resilience amidst unsettling conditions and determination to continue providing quality service despite tougher struggles, women have continuously shown power to lead and thrive even in a difficult situation.
With the Cavite Extension project, the total number of LRT-1 stations will increase from 20 to 28, covering several major cities including Quezon City, Caloocan, Manila, Pasay, and Paranaque, all the way to Bacoor, Cavite. It will add 11 kms to the existing railway system and is expected to service up to 800,000 passengers per day. It is also expected to increase and enhance commercial development around the rail stations.
ikotMNL was launched in 2018 as a tourism campaign, in partnership with the Department of Tourism (DOT) and local tour operators to promote rediscovery of Metro Manila’s historical spots and landmarks that are accessible by riding the LRT-1. Through LRT-1’s ikotMNL, local and foreign tourists can rediscover more of Intramuros, Binondo, or Quiapo since they can take the train and have more time to explore Manila for food, shopping, museums, and parks.
