Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) is currently conducting a test run of LRT 1 (Baclaran to Roosevelt) extended operating hours from July 10 to August 9!
For the duration of the month-long dry run, LRT 1 service hours will be extended for one hour, with northbound trains leaving Baclaran Terminal at 9:40 p.m., 9:50 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. and southbound trains leaving Roosevelt Terminal at 10:10 p.m. and 10:15 p.m.
On weekends and holidays, northbound trains will leave Baclaran Terminal at 9:10 p.m., 9:20 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. while southbound trains will leave Roosevelt Terminal at 9:40 p.m. and 9:50 p.m.
“If the test run will show an interest from the public, then we would be pleased to do a more detailed study to make it permanent,” LRMC President and Chief Executive Officer Jesus Francisco said.
LRT Line 1 currently has an average daily ridership of 400,000 commuters.
LRMC took over operation and maintenance of LRT Line 1 in September 2015. It will also be responsible for the construction of the 11.7-kilometer extension from the present end point at Baclaran to the Niog area in Bacoor, Cavite. The extended rail line is expected to help increase the capacity of LRT 1 from 500,000 to 800,000 passengers daily and benefit more than four million residents in the southern part of Metro Manila and of Cavite.
