Rail System

Manila has a rail system comprising the two lines of the Manila Light Rail Transit System (LRT) and the single line of the Manila Metro Rail Transit System (MRT), also known as the Metrostar Express or Metrostar. The LRT is open 5am-9.30pm, the MRT for one hour later. Pricing is different for each line and you can buy your tickets at the ticket booths. The rail system is the cheapest way to travel in Manila and easiest way to avoid the traffic but be aware during rush hours the trains are usually packed and there will be long queues to the ticket booths.
