Last Sunday I dared to try MRT from Taft station to Guadalupe to see how the situation with public transport in Metro Manila is (because I do not have to go to the office right now, most of the offices are here. Everyone changes to work from home) . In addition to the expectations, I found that the train was very clean, the seats were all about 1 meter apart to ensure the safety of the passengers, not to mention that before everyone got on the train, the cleaning staff cleaned and disinfected them. It’s all clean. . However, this only appears when the train is at the last station and when I go to other stations, everyone still has to keep their own hygiene and distance to people around. In addition, people now in the Philippines, when traveling in public, are required to wear a glass / plastic piece to prevent drops in addition to wearing a mask, so it is also quite safe.
As I have introduced in previous posts, to take the MRT / LRT train at Metro Manila You will buy tickets at the counter or automatic ticket machines, if someone walks a lot, buy a beep card and then load around 50-100 pesos to travel for convenience. If you travel on Saturday, Sunday or public holidays in the Philippines, give it a try, but on weekdays, stay away from rush hour, because at this point, people are packed and queuing for hundreds of meters down to the top. wait for the train. But the MRI here is often damaged or has many problems, sometimes it can not even get on the train to wait for the eyes to be worn. Once, I waited for almost 2 hours just to take the 15 minute long (8 km) train route.
