LRT, MRT to follow regular weekend sked on Christmas Day
Commuters can still avail of the Light and Metro Rail Transit (LRT/MRT) systems on Christmas Day, the LRT Administration said Thursday.
LRTA spokesman Hernando Cabrera said both rail systems will operate on Christmas Day, a Sunday, using the regular weekend schedule.
“Merong LRT at MRT operation on Dec. 25. For LRT, regular weekend schedule ang ipatutupad sa Dec. 25,” Cabrera said on his Twitter account.
Under the LRT-1 weekend and/or holiday schedule, the first train leaves the Baclaran station bound for Roosevelt Station at 5 a.m.
