MANILA, Philippines — Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) reminded commuters on Wednesday to follow their safety guidelines at Light Rail Transit-1 (LRT-1) stations following a recent incident of a female passenger who fell on the rails at Doroteo Jose Station.

“LRMC continues to provide safe and efficient services, and calls on the riding public to follow the rules and regulations being implemented at the stations and inside the trains,” the management, which oversees operations of LRT-1, said in its statement on Wednesday.


The management added that it “reserves the right to deny entry to individuals who pose safety and security risk.”

Earlier, a passenger at the LRT-1 station fell on the rails after she felt dizzy, prompting the management to temporarily stop operations of the LRT-1 line at 6:40 a.m. which then resumed at 7:09 a.m.


On its official website, LRMC posted its rules and regulations to ensure safety of passengers at LRT-1:
