Only 120 passengers will be allowed to board trains of the Light Rail Transit (LRT) and Metro Rail Transit (MRT) when select modes of public transportation resume following the lifting of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said Friday (May 1).

Transportation Undersecretary Artemio Tuazon Jr. told GMA News’ “Unang Hirit” that the number of passengers to be allowed on the trains represent 20 percent of their capacity.

Prior to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, an estimated 1 million passengers ride the LRT lines 1 and 2, and MRT 3.

Public transportation is still suspended in Metro Manila as the ECQ remains in effect until May 15.

The DOTr allowed some modes of public transportation to resume operations in areas under general community quarantine (GCQ), but they can only accommodate half of their maximum passenger capacity in accordance with the protocol on physical distancing.
