Gone in 5 minutes: MRT-3 sets schedule for bus augmentation program
Buses parked at loading and unloading stations along the MRT-3 line will leave every five minutes whether or not they have passengers.
In a statement, the Department of Transportation said the buses will be using dedicated median lanes along EDSA to deliver faster travel times to passengers.
Under the MRT-3 Bus Augmentation Program, the first bus departs at 5:30 AM and the last bus departs at 8:00 PM.
The southbound loading stations are at MRT3 North Ave. Station and Quezon Ave. Station, and unloading stations are at Ayala Station and Taft Station.
Northbound loading stations are at MRT3 Taft Station and Ayala Station, and unloading stations are at Ayala Station, Quezon Ave. Station, and North Ave. Station.
The list of loading and unloading stations will be gradually expanded, pursuant to the DOTr’s phased and calibrated approach in restarting Metro Manila’s public transport network.
