Good news to our commuting students. The Department of Transportation (DOTr) recently announced that they can ride the MRT-3, LRT-2, and PNR free of charge on weekdays.
The free fare is applicable to students during select hours of the day from Mondays to Fridays, excluding holidays. Schedules are as follows:
- MRT-3: 5AM to 6:30AM and 3PM to 4:30PM
- LRT-2: 5AM to 6:00AM and 3PM to 4PM
- PNR: 5AM to 6:00AM and 3PM to 4:30PM
The free ride is effective starting July 1, 2019. Students who wish to avail will need to apply for a Student Pass. The DOTr has set-up a simple application process on this LINK.
You will be asked to answer a couple of questions and provide personal information, as well as upload a photo of your school ID. Once completed, the DOTr will advise you if your Student Pass is ready for pick-up.
