A DAY ON THE PURPLE LINE

Was travelling to Antipolo on the LRT 2 when I fancied using my new Nokia 3230's 1.35 megapixel camera. Since cameras are not allowed inside all train systems in the Metro, maybe there are some things a phone camera can capture that a normal camera cannot. Here's what we got.



Going up the Santolan Station


Why is her name spelled completely compared to, say, Legarda or Recto's? *peace sign*

The sleek interiors of the Purple Line, a project made possible through Japan's JICA

Kapit, kapit...kapit!

Manila whizzes past below

The yellow sign says, "Do not lean on door."



Can't wait to be home....

Coping mechanisms: Two students find ways of surviving a ride home.


End of the line!

I like the LRT 2 line. It's rarely as packed and it's still clean. When will the other lines take lessons from LRT 2 managers?

LRT1 is managed by the same company managing LRT2 - the Marcos-era Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA).

And yet the two lines are like night and day. LRT 1 is a cesspool. Why didn't they connect the LRT 1 and 2 then?

They are connected at LRT1's Doroteo Jose (d.Jose) Station :-) There's a walk bridge connecting it to LRT2's Recto Station.
