Approved fares for the LRT-2's Marikina and Antipolo stations were announced ahead of its official opening on Wednesday.

According to the Light Rail Transit Authority advisory, a train ride from Recto to either Marikina or Antipolo and vice versa is priced at P30 for a single-journey ticket. Beep card commuters will only have to pay P26 for the trip.

Official opening to commuters will be on Wednesday, with a ceremony preceding it on Tuesday.

The LRT-2 East Extension was initially set to open last April, but was postponed to June due to pandemic restrictions and a spike in cases among staff.

Once fully operational, the trip from Recto in Manila to Antipolo in Rizal will take 40 minutes compared to an estimated three-hour trip via jeepney or bus. The two stations are seen to accommodate an additional 80,000 passengers daily.
