No MRT operation during Holy Week break

MANILA The Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3) will suspend its operations from Holy Wednesday, March 28, 2018 until Easter Sunday, April 1, for maintenance activities of the rail system.

In a media advisory on Friday, the MRT-3 management said that the railway system will have its normal operations on Holy Tuesday with its resumption on Monday after the five day suspension.

The Department of Transportation has earlier said that it aims to increase the number of running trains in MRT-3 to 15 by April once the railway management concludes the maintenance work.

The railway system has reached 11 running trains yesterday and has been running on ten trains since early this month.

The MRT-3 management attributed the improvement in the operations to the arrival of spare parts starting last month which resulted to the increase in the number of operational trains.
