Manila, Philippines – Mananatili sa 70% capacity ang lahat ng tren sa Metro Manila kahit pa nasa ilalim ng Alert Level 3 ang NCR, ayon sa Department of Transportation (DOTr).

Sa kalatas ng DOTr, patuloy nilang ipapatupad ang health protocols sa mga nakasakay sa tren at ilan pang rail facilities tulad ng stations at depots gayundin ang pagsasagawa ng random antigen tests sa mga pasahero.

“As recommended by our railways sector, all rail lines will maintain the present 70% passenger capacity under the Alert Level 3 status, provided that strict health measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 will be enforced,” ani Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade.

“This is to avoid the ‘bottlenecking’ or crowding of passengers at stations, which may increase the risk of virus transmission.”

Magpapatupad ang rail lines ng random antigen testing sa mga magboboluntaryo at papayag na pasahero.

“The random antigen testing of consenting and volunteering passengers is intended to guide us in the adoption of any further needed measures,” pahayag ni Transportation Undersecretary for Railways Timothy John “TJ” Batan.

“Passengers who volunteer to be tested will be permitted to proceed with their trip after testing, and will be informed of their test results by text message.” RNT/FGDC
