350 offloaded as MRT suffers 19th train breakdown
The Metro Rail Transit (MRT) Line 3 suffered its 19th glitch for the month as it unloaded 350 passengers on Monday afternoon.
According to MRT-3 advisory, it offloaded the train riders at Taft Avenue-Magallanes (NB) station due to a technical problem.
The technical problem was caused by worn out ATP sub-components such as regulator, insulators, chopper and carbon brush.
Passengers were loaded on the next train five minutes later, the advisory said.
From Dec. 10-16, MRT-3 suffered nine technical problems, leaving train passengers late for work, school or appointments.
