The Light Rail Transit Line 2 (LRT-2) is offering free rides for women on Monday, March 8 in celebration of International Women’s Day.
In an announcement posted on its Facebook page, the Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) said the LRT-2 would offer free rides to female passengers from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Passengers were reminded to adhere to all safety protocols being implemented inside stations and coaches to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
These include the mandatory wearing of face masks and face shields, temperature checking, regulated entry of passengers, physical distancing, and the “no talking” policy, among others.
The so-called purple line or LRT-2 runs from Recto in Manila to Santolan in Marikina.
International Women’s Month is celebrated every March to empower and inspire women to make a change.
