The Shanghai Metro also has several "virtual" interchanges which fulfill the same purpose. Through transit is achieved through the use of RFID cards, in this case.

The LRT, however, has full fare integration for stored-value cards. LRT-1 SV cards may be used on MRT-2 and vice versa. But don't expect integration soon with the MRT, largely due to ownership issues.

I hope the President is intent on keeping the SRTS, no matter how much he "hates" his predecessor.

I think that future stations should be physically integrated. As for the current ones, they can add infrastructure such as closed walkways. As for those that already have walkways, can we tidy them up a bit. I hate that there's a pattern where we just keep adding stuff.

It's hard to physically integrate stations if the trend of rapid transit development in the Philippines leans towards elevated rail. It's easier to design and implement physical integration solutions should the lines be underground.

These photos are a bit old, I just saw them while cleaning up my photo library.

Just for anyone who still haven't seen the turnstiles of the LRT Line 1 North Extension. Taken at Balintawak station.

BUMP!

Cross-posting from the Philippine forums: a test run of Yellow Line (Line 1) rolling stock at the depot of the Blue Line (Line 3) in Quezon City. This could mean further integration of the two lines.

Nais din ng Metro Rail Transit Corporation na kung pwede ang mga tren ng LRT sa MRT at sinukat ang tren ng LRT sa platfornm ng depot. Thanks to Metro Rail Transit Corporation.

Corrections should be the following:

*Dapitan -> Laong Laan (more common name)
*San Pedro, Laguna -> San Pedro (there's only one San Pedro railway station in the Philippines)
*Pacita MG -> Pacita Complex

Also, it's Biñan and España, with the ñ.

Marubeni to build $1-B PHL rail project

Quote:
A group involving Marubeni Corp. has won a billion-dollar contract to expand the Philippine capital's railway system, the Japanese firm's local partner said Tuesday.

Marubeni and a unit of DMCI Holdings Inc. is to build a 22-kilometer extension of Metro Rail Transit, listed DMCI disclosed to the Philippine Stock Exchange.

DMCI spokesman Elery Mendoza told AFP the project would cost around $1 billion and start early next year.

In Tokyo, Dow Jones Newswires quoted a Marubeni statement as saying it and DMCI received an order worth $1 billion to build railway tracks and stations in Manila.

The project is owned by San Miguel Corp., one of the country's largest business groups.

It would extend the system to the densely populated Bulacan province north of Manila.

Manila's light rail systems currently serve about 1.3 million commuters daily.

MANILA - After much delay, the bidding for the P60-billion extension of Asia's first overhead light rail system has begun, as the government invites local and international investors to apply for eligibility.

The Department of Transportation and Communications on Monday issued an invitation to pre-qualify and bid for the P60 billion Light Rail Transit Line 1 -Cavite Extension Project.

The DOTC had planned to bid out the project last month, but put off the auction as it grappled with a scheme that would entail no increase in fares despite the envisioned improvement in service.

The southbound extension of LRT 1 will increase the train's span from 20.7 kilometers to 32.4 kilometers, with approximately 10.5 kilometers of the extension elevated and 1.2 kilometers at grade.

The University of the Philippines Diliman Monorail


http://www.urbika.com/projects/view/...liman-monorail

Quote:
The University of the Philippines Diliman Monorail, also known as the Automated Guideway Transit[2], will be the first monorail system to be built in the Philippines.[3] Plans for the monorail system was revealed as early as December of 2010. The groundbreaking ceremony was held on July 18, 2011.

The monorail system shall cover a single track that is 500 meters in length.[1] The speed of the train is planned to be from 50 to 60 km/h, but an upgrade to 120 km/h is under study. The budget of the Department of Science and Technology for the elevated track and the AGT train is placed at PHP 16 million and PHP 4 million respectively.[1] The projected total cost would be PHP 20-25 million. The train will have two passenger coaches with a seating capacity of 60 per coach.[1]

The UP monorail will start operations December 2012

Just 500m line? Seems pointless...

Yes, let's try to get it up to 120 km/h on a 500 meter stretch... and watch it fly off the end of the rail :P

That's because the monorail will only serve the campus of the University of the Philippines Dilliman, FYI.

What is remarkable about it is it uses local technology. It will also serve as a prototype for other planned monorail systems in the metropolis.


Work on all-Filipino monorail starts in UP

The Metro Rail Transit (MRT) Tips and Guide

Good read for MRT commuters.
Quote:
The Manila Metro Rail Transit (or better known as MRT or Blue Line) has been the main mode of transportation of commuters traveling along Epifanio Delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) in Metro Manila, gaining tremendous popularity since its opening a decade ago. Latest statistics show that there are 10-12 million passengers every month, with around 400,000-500,000 on a daily average.

DOTC to pursue North Edsa common station - LRTA

Quote:
MANILA - The Department of Transportation and Communications will pursue the construction of a common station that would link the three mass rail transit lines in Metro Manila.

"The common station will push through. The lead agency is DOTC. We are coordinating with them as to the actual design because it has to accommodate LRT Line 1, MRT3 and MRT7," Emerson L. Benitez, Light Rail Transit Authority officer-in-charge said.

Benitez expects the design of the common station to be finalized this month.

He said the government has allotted P1.608 billion for the project.

The project would link "platform to platform" the existing Metro Rail Transit Line 3, the Light Rail Transit Line 1 North Extension and the proposed MRT 7.

Bidding for LRT, MRT single ticketing project set next month

Quote:
MANILA - The Department of Transportation and Communications on Tuesday said it would bid out next month the P1.8 billion single ticketing system - called the "Octopus" card - for Metro Manila's mass rail transit services.

"The Octopus project is going to be bid out by August," Transport Secretary Manuel "Mar" Roxas told reporters.

Similar to Hong Kong's "Octopus" card, the Philippine version would allow daily commuters to use single ticket when they ride Light Rail Transit Lines 1 and 2, and the Metro Rail Transit Line 3. The three rail services have a combined ridership of a million a day.

Roxas had said the ticket would be like an ATM card that can be used to purchase items in convenience stores, among others.
