Metro Rail Transit line 3 (MRT-3) operations were disrupted Monday morning due to power supply failure.


MRT-3 media relations officer Aly Narvaez told reporters that as of 6 a.m., no trains have been inserted on the tracks between North Ave. and the GMA Kamuning northbound stations.

However, she clarified that no passengers were affected by the power supply failure.


“Clarification lang po, walang passenger unloading dahil hindi pa po nakapag-akyat ng train,” she told reporters.

The power supply of the MRT-3 went normal at about 6:15 a.m. and started to deploy six trains at 6:45 a.m, Narvaez said.

On a daily basis, MRT-3 operations start at 5:30 a.m. with at least five running trains. /cbb
