MRT, LRT fare hike starts January 4, 2015

The Light Rail Transit Lines 1 and 2 (LRT-1 and LRT-2) and the Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3) will implement its fare hike starting January 4, 2015, according to the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC).

The base fare will be P11.00 + P 1.00 (per kilometer) at the LRT-1 and LRT-2 and the MRT-3, the agency said.

Based on the DOTC formula, the new fare rate will make a trip from North Edsa to Taft worth P28 (from the original P15) at the MRT-3.

Meanwhile, the LRT-1 (Roosevelt to Baclaran) will now charge P30 for a single journey trip while the LRT-2 (Recto to Santolan) trip will be at P25.

The DOTC said the fare hike will take effect on January 4, 2015.
