More passengers will be allowed to use the MRT-3 trains starting October 19, as the Department of Transportation (DOTr) increases the line’s passenger capacity from 13 percent to 30 percent, according to a report by CNN Philippines.

The DOTr said this means each train car can now accommodate up to 124 passengers, more than doubling the capacity from the current 51 passengers.

“The increase in train capacity is a timely boost for the MRT-3, as the public demands higher number of public transportation in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic,” MRT-3 Director for Operations Michael J. Capati said.

To minimize the risk of coronavirus transmission, the agency said it will continue to enforce strict health and safety protocols inside the trains.

These are:

1. Wearing of face masks and face shields

2. No talking and making telephone calls

3. No eating

4. Keeping public utility vehicles well-ventilated

5. Conducting frequent disinfection

6. Prohibiting entry of symptomatic passengers

7. Observing appropriate physical distancing rule
