Heads up, commuters. From March 28 to 31, the MRT-3 will temporarily halt operations in line with its annual Holy Week maintenance activities.

Maintenance is crucial to keep any machine running reliably. But it’s not easy for commuters when public transit shuts down, even temporarily.

That’s why the authorities should ensure there are alternatives—so that people don’t end up stranded or resort to unregulated modes of transport such as colorum or habal-habal.
