“These free rides for all LRT 2 passengers is our way of commemorating the Day of Valor. A salute to the veterans and the modern-day heroes, especially in the transportation sector” the LRTA administrator, Hernando Cabrera, said in Filipino.

LRT 2’s first trip will leave Recto Station and Antipolo Station at 5:00 a.m., while the last trip will be at 9:00 p.m. at the Antipolo Station and 9:30 p.m. at the Recto Station.

The announcement came after the management of Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT 3) announced on Wednesday a six-day free ride service for veterans and their companions — from April 5 to 11.

Veterans only need to present their valid identification card from the Philippine Veterans Affairs Office.
