STATEMENT OF SENATOR WIN GATCHALIAN ON THE LRT-2 SHUTDOWN

The LRT Line 2 is the only remaining segment among the three existing LRT and MRT lines that has yet to

be privatized. The LRTA needs to seriously look into the privatization of the operation and maintenance of the LRT-2 in order to avoid disruptions in operations such as the current shutdown of the entire line and the projected stoppage of operations of the Santolan, Katipunan, and Anonas stations for the next nine months.

Bukod sa paglalaan ng ng libreng sakay para sa mga apektadong pasahero ay kailangang paghandaan din ng LRTA ang long-term viability ng linya. Sa ngayon ay pagsasapribado sa operasyon ng LRT-2 ang pinakamainam na solusyon.
