MRT AND LRT FARE WILL INCREASE BEGINNING MARCH 2011
In March, the MRT and the LRT would charge an P11 boarding fee. Passengers would also be charged an additional P1 for every kilometer that would result in a three-denomination fare matrix of P15, P20 and P30 for single-journey tickets on both the LRT and MRT lines.
The current fares are P12 to P15 for LRT 1 and 2, and P10 to P15 for MRT.
LRT 1 runs from Baclaran in Parañaque City to Roosevelt in Quezon City;
LRT 2, from C. M. Recto Avenue in Manila to Barangay Santolan in Pasig City; and MRT, from Taft-EDSA in Pasay City to North Avenue in Quezon City.
