LRT2 Allows Globe to Build Capacity at Megatren During MECQ

To ensure better services and to elevate its passengers’ commuting experience when the new normal comes in, the Light Rail Transit Administration (LRTA) has given the go-signal for Globe to build its network capacity in LRT2 while Metro Manila is under the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


The collaboration between  LRTA and Globe will allow the company to install several cell sites along the stretch of LRT2’s line from  Santolan Station in Quezon City to Recto Station in Manila.

“This is the perfect opportunity for Globe to improve its services along our route. The ECQ has prevented us from operating, but as they say when a door gets shut, a window opens. Globe can build and expand its capacity while the trains are not allowed to transport passengers. We expect that when the ECQ is lifted and thousands of passengers go back to riding our trains, they will find comfort that they will have good and reliable service while they travel,” Retired Police General and LRTA Administrator Reynaldo Berroya said.


The LRT 2 line or Megatren is a rapid transit line in Metro Manila that has 11 stations serving at least 180,000 to 240,000 commuters a day before the implementation of the ECQ.  The Megatren covers at least 17 kilometers from Santolan to Recto with two more additional stations in the works—Masinag and Emerald—for its expansion.
