Ang announced the coming of the trains a week earlier from South Korea’s Hyundai Rotem, a food, drinks, and infrastructure conglomerate.

The MRT 7 is a P63-billion project that started construction in 2016. It will link North Avenue in Quezon City to San Jose del Monte in Bulacan and will serve as a unified transit hub linking the MRT 3, Light Rail Transit Line 1, and eventually, the Metro Manila subway.

SMC expects a total of 108 coaches to be shipped in the coming months.
