Operations for the LRT-2's Santolan, Katipunan, and Anonas Stations could resume as early as this week after a more than a year of suspension, a spokesperson said Wednesday.

Running on temporary power supply for now, the LRT-2 on the three stations will be slower and trip intervals will be longer, said LRT-2 spokesperson Hernando Cabrera
