MRT-3 ends ‘no offloading streak’ at Gil Puyat station
The glitch-free streak of the Metro Rail Transit line 3 (MRT-3) ended on Saturday afternoon after a northbound train unloaded its passengers at the Gil Puyat (Buendia) station.
In a report on Saturday, the MRT-3 management said about 650 passengers were unloaded from the train at about 1:10 p.m.
The MRT-3 train stopped at the Gil Puyat station after its motor encountered an electrical failure, the line’s management said.
The offloaded passengers were transferred to another train that arrived six minutes later at the Gil Puyat station.
According to the MRT-3 management, the last unloading incident happened on Oct. 15. This, according to the line’s management, was its longest “no offloading streak” since 2011. /muf
