MRT-3 glitch: 450 passengers unloaded at Cubao station
MANILA, Philippines — Around 450 passengers were unloaded from a Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3) train after it encountered a glitch in Quezon City Monday morning.
The passengers were unloaded at the Cubao station at 5:56 a.m. after the southbound train’s motor encountered an electrical failure, the MRT-3 management said.
It added that the 450 passengers were able to board the next train which arrived a few minutes later.
The management explained that the glitch was caused by “worn-out electrical sub-components.”
It assured that remedial measures, such as preventive maintenance and replacement of components, are being undertaken.
“We apologize for the inconvenience,” the MRT-3 management said in a statement.
