LRT 1 South Extension Project Exhilarating Opportunity in Las Pinas

The Light Rail Transit System Line 1, generally known as the LRT Line 1 (LRT-1) is a metropolitan rail system serving the Metro Manila area in the Philippines.

With the Cavite extension project, the total number of LRT-1 stations will increase from 20 to 28, covering several major cities including Quezon City, Caloocan, Manila, Pasay, and Paranaque, all the way to Bacoor, Cavite. It will add 11 km to the existing railway system and is expected to service up to 800,000 passengers per day. It is also anticipated to increase and enhance commercial development around the rail stations. Commuters can expect comfortable, reliable, and modern integrated transport riding the LRT-1 because travel time from Pasay City to Cavite will be cut down from an hour and a half to just twenty-five to thirty minutes.

The Transportation Department said the first phase of the Cavite extension project of Light Rail Manila Corp., the operator of Light Rail Transit Line 1 (LRT-1), is now more than half complete. The accelerated pace of construction also includes the expansion of the existing depot in Baclaran and the building of a new satellite depot at Zapote

The plan for the LRT-1 South Extension Project is to add eight new stations from Baclaran to Bacoor:

· Redemptorist (Aseana)

· Manila International Airport

· Asia World

· Ninoy Aquino

· Dr. Santos Avenue

· Las Pinas

· Zapote

· Niog

The Las Pinas station was first planned as part of the Line 1 South Extension plan. The extension will have 8 passenger stations with an option for 2 future stations (Manuyo Uno and Talaba). As of December 2021, the project is 61.60% complete.

Available to the masses as an easy way to get around, public transportation is something that is essential to society.
