Most of us have probably scheduled fun summer getaways for the upcoming Holy Week holidays, but there are also those who prefer to stay in the Metro instead—whether it's to take a dip in a nearby pool or to cool down with an icy treat to beat the heat. For those who are planning to commute around the city, here's a quick rundown of the operating hours of Metro Manila train services for Holy Week 2019:
The MRT-3 will not have commercial operations from April 15 to 21. According to the Department of Transporation, the train system will undergo its annual general maintenance shutdown.
The LRT-1 will be adjusting their operating hours in observance of the Holy Week. From April 15 to 17, the first trip to Baclaran will leave at 4:30 a.m. while the last trip will leave at 10:15 p.m. On the other hand, the first trip to Roosevelt will leave at 4:30 a.m. while the last trip will leave at 10 p.m. It will not be operating from April 18 to 21.
The LRT-2 has not made an announcement about their operating hours for the Holy Week. In 2018, the railway was put under maintenance for the week. It operated from 4:30 a.m. until 10 p.m., westbound, and 10:30 p.m., eastbound on Holy Wednesday and had no commercial operations for the other days. This article will be updated when the information on its operating hours for 2019 is available.
