Free rides on the MRT-3 may be availed of by students from Monday to Friday, excluding holidays, from 5 a.m. to 6:30 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

Students only need to present their school identification card or registration form to station personnel located in a service gate to get their free ride.

Interested students are also invited to apply to the program by filling up an online form in the DOTr’s Student Free Ride Program website: tinyurl.com/y66f8nr4.

Personal applications are also accepted in Malasakit Help Desks in MRT-3 stations, which require a copy of a school ID, filled-up registration form, and a 2x2 ID picture.

However, students taking graduate studies are not covered by the free ride program, which the DOTr formed as an incentive for students to go to school early.

The free ride program also covers the Light Rail Transit (LRT) - 1, LRT-2, and the Philippine National Railway.
