LRT-1 Mobile App To Be Launched In August
The LRT-1 is set to be extended further to Cavite and construction is already on the horizon. Despite the delay of Light Rail Manila’s fare hike proposal, the funding for the project has already been secured. Commuters looking forward to this project can rest easy knowing that it’s all set to go.
There’s also another news that LRT-1 commuters could look forward to. The Light Rail Transit system will be launching its mobile app in August to help commuters navigate the train line. The app will feature a crowd monitoring technology and LRT-1’s real-time train schedules with the use of GPS trackers. The mobile app will be available on iOS and Android devices.
In an interview with Light Rail Manila Corp president and CEO Juan Alfonso in ANC, he said:
“It helps passengers really navigate through the LRT system. It gives them real-time schedules of when the trains are arriving… With the crowd function if one of rider is beside two stations he can choose between stations with the least amount of traffic.”
