Important Advisory: MRT-3 operations suspended on Holy Week, March 28-31, 2024

For those who might have been planning to use the MRT-3 to get around during Holy Week, you might want to rethink your plans. It was recently announced that operations of all lines of Metro Rail Transit 3 will be suspended for four days “to give way for the rail line’s annual Holy Week maintenance activities”. The suspension will be from March 28 to 31.

There isn’t much time to get any maintenance work done for the MRT-3. Unless very long weekends and holidays are declared, it’s usually during Holy Week that all these are done. This year will be no different as the announcement was made just last Friday that starting Maundy Thursday, March 28, to Easter Sunday, March 31, operations will be suspended.

That said, do try to plan your means of getting around without the MRT-3 during Holy Week, and stay safe out there, everyone!
