And I think most passengers are OFW if the train is really connected to the NMIA. They should plan this railway properly so that hindi magulo sa bandang huli. May domestic din ba yung NMIA or purely international flights?

So if SMC connects this to Marilao ganito na sya.

NMIA to Marilao Station>Marilao to Buendia>Buendia to CBD by Taxi

It's not great, but it's not bad either if your travelling light as a business traveller who will be in the city for 1-3 days.

Ang hassle is if you're an OFW na malaki luggage.
Walang provision doon sa Marilao station para sa track na paputang NMIA. Ang mangyayari dyan another line yan na tatayuan ng separate station. Medyo masikip na yung harap ng SM Marilao kailangan kunin yung ibang part ng McArthur Highway para sa another SMC train station.

Oo kaya nga sabi ko NMIA to Marilao muna>transfer>Marilao to Buendia.

Pero ang importante dito ang gusto ata ni LODI RSA ay sa EDSA. So instead na PNR either Line1 or Line3 ang transfer mo which is much more hassle since alam naman natin na hindi for airport passengers yan dalawang masikip na line na yan

SMC can make a spur track all the way to NMIA and use the PNR tracks. And might be the train frequency of CIA limited express can transfer to SMC express train

Monorail na lang from nearest PNR station.

I don't think PNR will allow SMC to use the PNR ROW. Remember that RSA agreed that there will be no expense borne by the government for this project. Besides, the PNR tracks are already being used for a railway already under construction.

This is what I think is most likely to happen in the short to medium term.

It would be really cool though to see a new railway connecting to at least Balintawak or the Common station in EDSA. And at no cost to the government!

Gonna be one extremely expensive project, I can't wait for SMC to prove doubters like me wrong.

If we're talking about MRT 7 to NMIA, then there would be two problems - structure gauge and electrification differences. The PNR NSCR uses overhead wires while MRT 7 uses third rail. Even if SMC and PNR agreed to share tracks, and even if third rails were installed in the necessary sections, the PNR NSCR structure gauge only allows trains up to 4.1 m high and 3 m wide. MRT 7 trains may be under 4.1 m high, but they're still too wide for PNR.

Another is from PITX along Roxas Blvd to NMIA. SMC can use the center island between Roxas blvd service road and main highway

That is much better route. Tapos gawin nalang high capacity para matulungan ang LRT1 kasi pag naextend na to Cavite lagi na puno L1.

Pwede rin sila mag spur from Roxas Blvd to Buendia connecting to Makati Subway

Easier said than done. That suggestion will not happen. Why would Manila allow an airport express train to traverse along Roxas Blvd when the immediate need of its surrounding is a public transport to support people working in this area.!? That is why Mayor Isko wants to revive Electric Tram in his jurisdiction.

Watch Ramon Ang's video again. The airport express train will be built from Balintawak that will traverse his NLEX to NMIA.

MRT Line 7 can also be extended. It doesn't need to share tracks with PNR. Why would it be in the first place!?

Not from common station to NMIA, just from Marilao Station. NSCR is in full swing na.

I watched a video on FB about the NMIA and included ang description ng express train, it will traverse Manila, QC, Malabon and Navotas. Im back reading some articles and SMC said they will make an MRT loop to EDSA from the new airport.

Commuter Rails to and from International Airports are not mainly used by Air Passengers - International or Local and then they can get off a plane and get car, bus, train, ship or another plain to reach their last destination....

Southern Passengers have to use PNR and take whatever train goes North Bound (North South Commuter Railway)...

Pray that PNR South Long Haul + Freight Service will be Built after...

Once all is built and running...

Clark, New Manila, Sangley, Old NAIA (or any future IA to be built in Batangas or Quezon) and New Bicol IA will be all connected by Rail...

Seaports of Subic, Manila, Batangas, Quezon & Bicol Regions will be all connected...

Likewise once all MRT LRT has been fully extended and more lines are built Connectivity will be easing trafffic & congestion....
