This is a good news

No LRT Fare Hike
By Rainier Allan Ronda

The Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) will not seek a fare increase for the LRT, and no fare hike is expected for the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) despite the rise in fares for buses, jeepneys and taxis.

Melquiades Robles, LRTA administrator, said that although a fare increase could boost revenues and raise funds for maintenance and operating expenses of the agency, they would abide by President Arroyo’s policy of maintaing current fares for LRT lines 1 and 2, and even line 3 or the MRT.

Here's the complete page of the article.

Thank you, Rainier for your effort on this. It makes me happy knowing about this particular matter because I have several relatives living in Manila who uses LRT, as well as my youngest brother.
