We’re all getting a day off on Monday to celebrate Araw ng Kagitingan (Day of Valor), but the MRT has other plans to honor Filipino veterans.
In a tweet yesterday, the Department of Transportation announced that all Filipino veterans and one companion will get free MRT-3 rides from April 5 — 11 (Thursday — Wednesday). The treat is also in observance of Philippine Veterans week happening on those days.
Veterans will need to present their Philippine Veterans Affairs Office ID card in order to get a single-journey ticket for the train.
But on Monday, it started operating 15 trains again for the first time since January after undergoing repairs during last week’s Holy Week break.
