Commuting to Taguig From Malabon Just Got Easier With the New PNR Extension
The new Malabon - Taguig train segment will start operating today.
(SPOT.ph) With all the new point-to-point bus services from the South these days, we understand if those from the north of Manila have been feeling somewhat envious. Here’s some good news to start the week: Thanks to the north line extension of the Philippine National Railways, folks from Malabon can now travel to Taguig faster and easier! The Malabon - Taguig train segment formally launched its operations today, December 3, as announced by the Department of Transportation.
There will be eight trips from Gov. Pascual to FTI station every day and four trips from Tutuban to Gov. Pascual and vice versa. The train service will pass by the following stations: Sangandaan, Asistio, 5th Avenue, Solis, Blumetritt, España, Sta. Mesa, Paco, Dela Rosa, and EDSA stations. The one-way fare is priced at P25 for airconditioned coaches and P20 for non-airconditioned ones, with an estimated route duration of 58 minutes.
The extension was first approved and announced in October by the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Department of Public Works and Highways. According to Malabon City Rep. Ricky Sandoval, the two-kilometer extension is expected to ease traffic along EDSA and is pegged as the fastest and most cost-efficient means of transportation from Malabon to Taguig.
