“Nakikiisa po ang buong linya ng MRT-3 sa pagdiriwang ng National Children’s Month ngayong buwan ng Nobyembre. Nawa po sa aming libreng sakay ay maipadama namin sa ating mga kabataan ang aming paghanga at pagpapahalaga sa kanilang galing at husay, na siyang magiging pundasyon ng ating maunlad na bayan,” said DOTr Assistant Secretary for Railways and MRT-3 Officer-in-Charge Jorjette Aquino.

(The entire MRT-3 line is joining in the celebration of National Children’s Month this November. May our free ride make our young people feel our admiration and appreciation for their talents and skills, which will be the foundation of our prosperous nation.)
