No number coding for Cainta-Quiapo buses until LRT-2 resumes full operations
MANILA, Philippines — The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has lifted the number coding scheme for public utility buses plying the Cainta-Quiapo route.
In an advisory on Tuesday, the MMDA said this is to “assist the commuting public in its transportation needs while the Light Rail Transit Line 2 (LRT-2) is undergoing repair.”
The suspension of the number coding scheme will be in effect starting Oct. 8 until the LRT-2 is able to resume its full operations, the agency added.
At present, the LRT-2 is implementing partial operations from Cubao station to Recto station only as the Santolan, Katipunan, and Anonas stations are still undergoing repairs.
The train line operations were suspended last Thursday after a power rectifier tripped and caught fire in between Santolan and Katipunan stations.
The Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) said it would take them up to nine months minimum before LRT-2 full operations will be restored. /je
