Have you guys seen the MRT in EDSA? It shows that they're already stretching all the way to Monumento. What are your thoughts on this?

I think that is a good thing... since this will certainly ease traffic in the future... just like what it did to Edsa... i always take the MRT from North Edsa to Ayala or Magallanes... and that is a great because i don't need to go through traffic and all that pollution...

That's true. People living in the Balintawak area and Valenzuela area have a better chance in avoiding traffic.

Yep and a broader route too. This is great for people who live closer to the North Expressway.

Finally! This will really benefit the commuting public but I think there are things that the rail transit administrations and the Caloocan City government have to look into once this stretch of MRT is finished. With the connection of LRT 1 and MRT, there will be expected increase in the number of passengers. Are there plans in place to ensure the additional passengers can be accommodated? And since day 1, MRT is too overcrowded during rush hours. Are their plans to increase the carrying capacity of MRT to ease the situation? Converging the end of LRT1 and MRT in Monumento, Caloocan is another possible headache for the commuters. Try to visit Monumento Circle one of this days and you will never miss the tons of people in the area. Too much vehicles too passing in the area and is always a traffic choke point. Does the Caloocan City government have plans to see to it that the situation will not worsen with the expected increase of people flocking to the place?

Hi xtedaxcvg, good day to you my kababayan. Well, all i can say is this really great because it streatching all the way to monumento, i think the transforation will be faster because of that thing. But my question is it safe? Does the material of the stracture is good, because if it's not good many accident will be encounter, so i hope the structure is strong. As i remenber the NEW NAIA airport, there are so many failure in this structure like falling ceiling, because of the reason it is not strong. .what i mean was the durability of the stracture are very poor and it is need to improved. I am hopin that in the MRT it will not happen. I also think that the price or fair must be good also in order to those people who do not have a lot of money. Well as i remember, the first time that i try to ride in the MRT, I can say that this transfortation was really good,fast, and gives more comfort than riding in a jeepney, and tricycle, because it is aircon and the design of MRT inside is good and very safe, because the there are so many safety griper. By the way when riding in this tranfortation machine do not forget your ticket at the first gate, because if you for get to get it you will no longer pass the last gate. Hehe... lol. Well in summary, the MRT that is streatch to monumento is very good and more fast. Well that's all my response to this forum topic entitled " a whole new MRT". I am hoping that my response to your forum topic discussion is interesting. Happy posting and happy earning. . . Good luck to our earning career here in this site mylot. . . =)

Wow, that's great! Indeed a great news to all commuters like me.. I hope they would stretch it all the way to Alabang too.. =) and this means, less traffic as more and more people would opt to commute than bringing their own cars..

The Mrt, Lrt connecting stations had been long planned. Finally it is now pushing thru.This will cause a lot of traffic parallel to the route of the construction. But this will all be temporary. Once it is done, travelling would be much easier and faster.

The longer the better. This would make traveling time more covenient. Although, if this happens I wonder what will happen to public transportations?

Hi xtedaxcvg! This is good news for all of us. It is time to really have an effective and faster means of transportation. Our roads are clogged by traffic due to the numerous PUB and PUJ running the different route of Metro Manila. I really do hope that the government will extend the MRT up to the nearby provinces, particularly here in Cavite. Have a nice day.

I guess that would ba a good news for those that are in Munomento. I used to ride at North Ave. Station and I cannot complain about the speed that I travel compared to if I ride the bus at North EDSA to EDSA Shaw Station. But what I would be complaining is the number of riders that ride every coach I think is a little overcrowded and sometime you have to squeeze in yourself to be able to ride one coach especially on working days. Same goes when I go back from office to home. With the addition of another route I expect this to become worse for stations that are in between the first and last station. It means that riders in Munomento are the ones to benefit more from this as they are the first passenger to ride the empty coach but those that will ride in the succeeding stations would mean they will have a hard time getting a space to ride. I am just lucky that I found a place nearer to my workplace. I do not have to ride the MRT anymore just two jeepney rides and I am there already.

That's great! Mass transits like the MRT and LRT are really helpful specially for the commuting public. I think the government should have done that long before. Also stretching another line along Commonwealth Avenue is another good idea. I just hope the project itself is not overpriced and the funds are used the right way.

I agree with gracie04 it would be much better if they stretch it from alabang/Laguna, since some of the people here work to makati/ortigas.
