The Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3) continues to log a record number of riders and has since reached 408,259 passengers on Tuesday, the highest number of passengers in a single day since the rail service resumed operation in June 2020.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, the MRT-3 noted an increase in daily ridership in February, with a record 400,182 daily passengers on February 1, then surpassed by 403,128 passengers on February 8.

“Mayroong average na bilang na 18 train sets na tumatakbo sa mainline tuwing peak hours [There is an average of 18 train sets running in the mainline during peak hours],” it said.

The MRT-3 was also recognized by the Inter-Agency Council for Traffic (I-ACT) on Monday and awarded the “Tapat na Lingkod [faithful service]” award for providing “safe and reliable” transportation amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The I-ACT recognized the big contribution of the MRT 3 that allowed commuters of the Edsa Busway to use facilities of the rail service for an effective and affordable transportation system,” the MRT 3 said in Filipino.

The I-ACT’s award ceremony, entitled “Pagpaparangal sa mga Dakilang Lingkod Bayan [Recognizing Great Public Servants],” was held at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City on Monday.

The I-ACT is an inter-agency body under the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and led by I-ACT chief Charlie del Rosario.
