The Manila Light Rail Transit System (Filipino: Sistema ng Magaang Riles Panlulan ng Maynila), commonly known as the LRT, is an urban rail transit system that primarily serves Metro Manila, Philippines. Although categorized as a light rail system because it originally used light rail vehicles, it presently has characteristics of a rapid transit system, such as high passenger throughput, exclusive right-of-way, and later use of full metro rolling stock. The LRT is jointly-operated by the Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA), a government corporation attached to the Department of Transportation (DOTr), and the Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC). Along with the Manila Metro Rail Transit System and the Metro Commuter Line of the Philippine National Railways, the system makes up Metro Manila's rail infrastructure.
The LRT's 33.4-kilometer-route (20.8 mi) is mostly elevated and consists of two lines and 31 stations. Line 1, also called the Green Line (formerly known as the Yellow Line), opened in 1984 and travels a north–south route. Line 2, the Blue Line (formerly, the Purple Line), was completed in 2004 and runs east–west. The original Line 1 was built as a no-frills means of public transport and lacks some features and comforts, but the newer Line 2 has been built with additional standards and criteria in mind like barrier-free access. Line 1 serves 500,000 passengers daily while the Line 2 serves 200,000 passengers. Security guards at each station conduct inspections and provide assistance. A reusable plastic magnetic ticketing system has replaced the previous token-based system in 2001, and the Flash Pass was introduced as a step towards a more integrated transportation system. In 2015, the plastic magnetic tickets were replaced with the Beep, a contactless smart card, introduced to provide a common ticketing to 3 rail lines and some bus lines.
The Civil Service Commission awarded LRTA the PRIME-HRM Bronze Award as one of 49 agencies in the Philippines that have been recognized as meeting the Level 2 maturity scores of four (4) major human resource management systems in the areas of recruitment, selection and placement; Education and development; Awards and recognition; and performance management.
Metropolitan Manila, the capital of the Philippines, is home to about 10 million people. A light rail system (Mass Rail Transit - MRT) is being developed, which mainly operates overground:
LRT 1 is a fully elevated north-south track, opened on December 1, 1984 (7 km) and June 1985 (8 km). It runs along Rizal and Taft avenues (15 km, 18 stations). The line capacity was increased in 1998. The line runs over a precast concrete structure 7 m above the street, designed to withstand earthquakes. It has a track gauge of 1435 mm and an air supply of 750 V.
