MANILA, Philippines – In celebration of the love month, LRT-1 operator Light Rail Manila Corporation brings back the LRT-1 love train with a new fun twist. Anchored on the theme #LRT1Love, Love for All, LRMC again transformed one of their trains into a colorful love train to commemorate Valentine’s and remind passengers that love can be expressed in different forms and through different means.
Through this year’s Love Train, LRMC promotes environmental awareness among its passengers who spend most of their time hustling around the bricks and buildings of the metro.
One Generation 3 train which has four light rail vehicles (LRVs) will feature familiar scenes on air, forest, ocean and watershed. These will not only provide a quick change in scenery for the commuters, it will also be an opportunity for LRMC to remind the passengers of the type of love they might have been taking for granted and prompt them to act for nature.
The Love Train is a part of LRMC’s effort in promoting a “feel-good” experience for its passengers through themed trains during Valentines, Christmas and other holidays.
As an added treat, LRMC also invites passengers to share their special Valentine’s greetings on LRMC’s social media pages using the hashtag#LRT1Love and by tagging @officialLRT1 on Twitter and Instagram and Light Rail Manila Corporation page on Facebook. Passengers and their loved ones will get to watch the greetings as they will be flashed on LRT-1 station screens on the weekends of February from 8 AM to 3 PM.
Apart from the Love Train, LRMC has been staying true to its commitment to the environment through its Live for the Rivers Movement Coalition, an ongoing cleanup campaign launched in 2016. The campaign encourages the locals living nearby Metro Manila’s longest creek, Estero de Tripa de Gallina, to be responsible residents and be accountable to the health and cleanliness of the creek. It organizes clean up missions and provides sustainable livelihood program for the communities.
The LRT-1 love train arrived on February 5 for its year-long run to spread love and good vibes.
