MRT-3 offloads 250 passengers due to mechanical error

Some 250 passengers were asked to disembark a train of the Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3), which experienced a mechanical problem on Friday morning.

In a statement posted on its Twitter account, the MRT-3 management said the affected train encountered an issue on its Automatic Train Protection (ATP) signaling and was forced to unload the passengers on the southbound platform of Kamuning station.
