The Department of Transportation said Tuesday it installed more bike racks in MRT-3 stations to accomodate the growing number of commuters whose new normal routes include bicycles and trains.

A total of 17 out of the planned 34 bike racks have been installed in the different stations along the MRT-3 line. Each bike rack can accommodate up to five bicycles and is free to use during train operating hours.

Stations in Cubao, Santolan, Ortigas, Shaw Boulevard, Boni and Guadalupe have been equipped with one bike rack, while Buendia station has four bike racks installed.

Two bike racks are available for use at the North Avenue and Quezon Avenue station. The GMA-Kamuning station has three bike racks for commuters.

Management warned cyclists to take care of their valuables and belongings, as they will not be held liable for any losses.
