On August 2, the fare prices for both LRT-1 and 2 will increase. Our previous articles on the matter simply indicated the amounts to be added to the base fare and the add-on for every kilometer traveled. The Light Rail Manila Corporation and Light Rail Transit Authority have released the new fare matrix for both lines and now we bring them to you.
New fare matrix for LRT-1 and 2 reflecting updated prices
Line 1, or for those taking the LRMC, the fares set for holders of the Stored Value Card (SVC) will be from PHP 14-35. Those who purchase Single Journey Tickets will have fares that will range from PHP 15-35.
As for those taking trains under the LRTA or Line 2, SVC fares will range between PHP 14-33, and Single Journey Ticket Holders will have to pay anywhere between PHP 15-35.
In line with this fare price adjustment, it’s been reported that the MRT-3 will also be putting a petition forward to up its rates. The target increase for the base fare is PHP 2.29 and an additional PHP 0.21 for every added kilometer traveled. While it may not be welcome news, perhaps it was also to be expected.
