Beginning today, July 1, 2019, students of Metro Manila get to ride the MRT-3, LRT-2, and PNR trains for free during rush hours.  This is an official announcement made by the Department of Transportation (DOTr) last week and is called the “Student Free Ride Program”.

Students can ride the said train lines for free from Monday to Friday (except holidays) during the following hours only:


  • 5 a.m. – 6:30 a.m.
  • 3 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.


  • 4:30 a.m. – 6 a.m.
  • 3 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.


  • 5 a.m. – 6 a.m.
  • 3 p.m. – 4 p.m.

All students, from preschool to college, can take advantage of the free ride program, as well as those enrolled in trade, arts, technical, and vocational schools.  They need only to show their valid school IDs.
