Good news, commuters!

The Libreng Sakay program of the MRT-3 has been extended for another month.

Free MRT-3 rides would be available up to June 30, 2022, the Department of Transportation announced on Wednesday.

The program, which began on March 28, was supposed to end on May 30.

The extension is intended to help more Filipinos cope with the rising prices of basic goods and fuel, and enjoy the improvements of the railway, the DOTr said.

“Layon ng Department of Transportation (DOTr), sa pangunguna ni Secretary Art Tugade, at ng DOTr MRT-3 Management, na patuloy na makapaghatid ng tulong sa ating mga kababayang patuloy na naaapektuhan ng pagtaas ng mga bilihin at krudo. Ito rin ay upang mas marami pang Pilipino ang makinabang sa mas much-improved at newly-rehabilitated MRT,” it said.

This is the second time the Libreng Sakay program has been extended.

It was first supposed to end on April 30, and was then extended to May 30.
