(UPDATE: The scheduled weekend suspension was postponed on Friday in light of the expected rainfall of Typhoon Rolly.)
The Metro Rail Transit (MRT-3) will suspend operations from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2, its operator said.
The halt in operations will be used for maintenance works, according to the MRT-3 management.
"Ang mga aktibidad na ito ay bahagi ng massive rehabilitation and maintenance na isinasagawa sa buong linya ng MRT-3 ng Sumitomo-Mitsubishi Heavy Industries mula sa bansang Hapon," the MRT-3 operator said.
Earlier this month, more people were allowed to ride the MRT, LRT and PNR trains, as part of efforts to boost the economy.
Train passengers are required to wear face masks and face shields, observe physical distancing, and refrain from talking while traveling.
