MANILA, Philippines — Operations of the Light Rail Transit Line 2 (LRT-2) started as early as 5 a.m. on Monday, a week after partial operations resumed.

The Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) earlier announced that it will adjust the schedule of operations from 6 a.m. to 5 a.m.


The schedule of train trips has been adjusted after the LRT-2 implemented partial operations from Cubao station to Recto and back due to a fire incident at the train line.
