"Ipinag-utos ko ang pagpapatupad ng libreng pamasahe para sa mga bakunadong pasahero ng MRT-3, LRT-2, AT PNR simula bukas, 3 August hanggang 20 August 2021," Transportation Sec. Arthur Tugade said.

Only authorized persons outside of residence, or APORs, will be allowed to leave their homes and ride the MRT-3, LRT-2, and PNR for free.
