Metro sys­tems

FHM (Philippines) - - VERGE -

The ex­ist­ing rail­ways are to be ex­tended, where the LRT1 even­tu­ally reaches Das­mar­iñas, Cavite and the LRT2 will run from An­tipolo to the North Har­bor. Ad­di­tion­ally, the MRT3 in­cludes a sta­tion on the Recla­ma­tion Area of Mall of Asia (con­nected to Taft Sta­tion) and a com­mon stop be­tween North Av­enue and Mon­u­mento. There are also MRT3 rail­ways to in­ter­change with a North-south PNR com­muter line and then to the cities of Navotas and Mal­abon.

New lines—in­clud­ing sub­way sys­tems—are also op­er­ated, such as the MRT7, which runs from Fairview Cen­ter Mall to North Av­enue above or un­der ma­jor roads like Edsa, Que­zon Av­enue, Recto, and Es­paña. An un­der­ground mono­rail sys­tem cov­ers ma­jor cen­tral busi­ness dis­tricts, such as the Bay Area, Makati, BGC, Or­ti­gas, North Tri­an­gle, FTI, and Ala­bang. A sub­ur­ban com­muter ser­vice con­nects Malo­los, Bu­la­can and Calamba, La­guna (us­ing the back­bone of the PNR rail­way), while a North-south sub­way line also con­nects Bu­la­can (via San Jose Del Monte) and Cavite (via Das­mar­iñas). This runs through a part of Edsa and con­nects the CBDS of Cubao, Or­ti­gas, Global City, and Ala­bang.
