The Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) will implement a new schedule for the last train service of LRT-1 on March 29 and 30.

The LRMC said that the first trip of both northbound and southbound trains will begin at 4:30 a.m. The last trip from Baclaran station will depart at 9:30 p.m. while the final train from Balintawak station will leave at 9:45 p.m.

“The adjusted schedule for the last train is in consideration of the government’s curfew from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m. and will allow LRT-1 Operations personnel to prepare and travel home safely,” it said.

As previously announced in the Holy Week schedule advisory, LRT-1 operations will be temporarily suspended from March 31 (Holy Wednesday) to April 4, 2021 (Easter Sunday) for the annual maintenance and rehabilitation works to facilitate continuous improvements to the LRT-1 system.

LRMC has also coordinated with the Department of Transportation for the deployment of public utility buses along the alignment of LRT-1 to support essential workers with additional means of transportation during this period.

LRT-1 will resume its operations on April 5 following a new schedule: northbound train (4:30 a.m. to 9:15 p.m.), southbound train (4:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.).

“The shortened operating hours will allow LRMC to perform safety and integration tests for the upgrading works of the LRT-1 signaling system, as well as prepare for the commercial run of the 4th Generation trains in the last quarter of the year,” it said.

“Rest assured that LRMC will continue to enforce its health and safety protocols and comply with IATF guidelines while operating and performing the maintenance works during this period,” it added.
