The Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) announces the temporary suspension of LRT-1 operations for two weekends in April 2021

The Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) announces the temporary suspension of LRT-1 operations for two weekends in April 2021 to continue the maintenance works needed for a better and improved LRT-1 experience.


The shutdown on April 17 – 18 and April 24 – 25, 2021 (Saturday & Sunday) will allow LRMC to complete the remaining maintenance and rehabilitation works started during the Holy Week. The works to be carried out during this period would cover the maintenance of trains, stations, and various systems including the scheduled replacement of overhead catenary wires. The additional days will also accelerate the preparations needed for the commercial use of the new Generation-4 train sets in Q4 2021.

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) has confirmed the deployment of public utility buses, running on Route 17 (Monumento to EDSA via Rizal Avenue/Taft Avenue), to support affected commuters during the temporary weekend shutdown. There will be no changes in the service schedule of LRT-1 on weekdays: Northbound train (4:30AM to 9:15PM), Southbound train (4:30AM to 9:30PM).


LRMC assures that it will continue to enforce its health and safety protocols, as well as comply with IATF guidelines while performing the maintenance works during this period.


The riding public is advised to be guided accordingly and plan their essential trips ahead during this period. Follow @officialLRT1 on Facebook and Twitter and download the ikotMNL mobile app on App Store or Google Play for more updates.




  1. These temporary shutdown of LRT-1 operations may give inconvenience to our affected commuters, nevertheless, these are for the betterment of the riding public. These maintenances are necessary to ensure that the operations will be safe and efficient.

  2. Naku malaking hirap na naman sa mga commuters kapag wala LRT lalo na kapag meju malayo pupuntahan.

  3. It is really good that they informed it a little bit advance so that their commuters will be fully guided about this. I know that this may bring a little bit of inconvenience for its daily commuters for a short period of time but I know that this is also for them to get a better customer service. I hope that everyone will adjust for this short changes.
