DOTr deploys 54 buses for LRT-1 route on Holy Wednesday


MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Transportation (DOTr) deployed 54 passenger buses on Holy Wednesday, March 27, to mitigate the impact on commuters of Light Rail Transit Line-1’s (LRT-1) temporary shutdown during the Holy Week.

In an advisory, the DOTr said that it had collaborated with the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) to deploy the buses along the routes affected by LRT-1’s closure.
