The Philippine government has approved the new rates for the train systems of its capital, MRT and LRT, which will take effect starting March 1.
Basically, there is an P11 boarding fee and every additional kilometer will be charged P1. Only three denominations of single journey tickets will be sold for passengers in order to make sure that giving of change will not be a problem anymore. In line with this, there will definitely be a faster turnover at the line.
The three denominations are P15, P20, and P30:
P15 – for short trips of up to 4 kilometers.
P20 – for 5- to 9-kilometer trips.
P30 – for longer trips.
Stored-value tickets worth P100 can still be purchased and its full value can be consumed.
