LRT-1 cancels service suspension on April 24-25

The Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) announced on Tuesday that Light Rail Transit (LRT)-1 operations will no longer be suspended from April 24-25 as majority of the planned maintenance works have already been completed ahead of schedule.

LRMC previously announced that two weekends in April will be needed to complete the remaining maintenance of trains, stations, and various systems including overhead catenary system started during the Holy Week. Major rehabilitation works were performed to continuously ensure the safety and reliability of the LRT-1 system.

“We recognize the role of public transport in ensuring the mobility of essential services and understand the needs of our commuters this pandemic. Our Engineering team did their best to accelerate and compress activities through improved planning and coordination. LRT-1 will no longer need another 1-weekend shutdown and will be back to serve our passengers this coming weekend,” LRMC chief operating officer Enrico Benipayo said.

There will be no changes in the service schedule of LRT-1. The last trip at Baclaran Station will leave at 9:15 .m. while the last train at Balintawak Station will depart at 9:30 p.m. First train for both northbound and southbound trips of LRT-1 starts at 4:30 a.m. daily.
