Dead PA system forces offloading of 240 MRT riders at North Avenue Station
A Metro Rail Transit-3 (MRT-3) train offloaded 240 passengers at North Avenue Station on Christmas Eve because of another “system failure.”
According to the MRT-3’s service report, its southbound train’s Public Address (PA) failed at 6:16 p.m. on Sunday.
“The PA system is the electronic system used by drivers to communicate with the passengers through audio messages/announcements,” the report said.
The glitch was blamed on a “worn out sub-components.”
Affected passengers were loaded on another train that arrived two minutes after.
