DOTR: The MRT-3 Is Now Faster & Comfortable Under Pres. Duterte

Transportation Secretary Arthur "Art" Tugade revealed on his latest social media post that the former controversial MRT-3, is now more faster and comfortable under the administration of Pres. Rody Duterte. 


According to Secretary Tugade, MRT-3 is now faster and returned to its normal operating and travel time, that will surely provide a commuting-like-no-other experience in the main rail line of Metro Manila. 


Sec. Tugade was quoted as saysing "ANG MRT-3 NGAYON Alam n’yo ba na noong September 2013 pa huling tumakbo ang MRT-3 sa bilis na 60kph?"

"Ilang taong napabayaan ang estado ng mga riles at bagon nito, kaya naman usad pagong ang takbo ng mga tren, at araw-araw ay umaabot sa tatlo hanggang lima (o higit pa) ang unloading incidents na naitatala dito."


"Ngayon, sa tulong ng MRT-3 Japanese Maintenance and Rehabilitation Provider, Sumitomo-MHI-TESP, mula sa bansang Hapon, unti-unting naisaayos at napabilis na ang biyahe ng MRT-3."i Tugade stated. 


The DOTR Secretary stated that during the first few months of MRT-3 operations under the administration of Pres. Duterte, the MRT-3 rail line's travel time was at 25-30 kilometers per hour, but right now under the leadership of Tugade, MRT-3 is already operating at a decent speed of 60 kilometers per hour since December 2020. 


The improved operating speed of MRT-3 was the result of careful rehabilitation and maintenance of the entire line, which already includes the massive rail replacement, that was concluded last September 2020 as well as the impressive overhauling of the trains. 

“Dahil sa improved speed, naging 3.5 hanggang 4 na minuto na lamang ang interval sa pagdating ng mga tren mula sa dating 8 hanggang 9.5 minuto."


“Kung dati, inaabot ng 1 oras at 15 minuto ang biyahe mula North Avenue Station hanggang Taft Avenue Station, ngayon ay nasa 50 minuto na lamang ito."

“Malaking tulong ito upang hindi mahuli ang mga pasahero sa kani-kanilang trabaho. Mabibigyan din ng ating mga kababayan ng mas mahabang panahon ang kani-kanilang pamilya at iba pang importanteng gawain o trabaho," Sec. Tugade stated.
