Physical distancing in railway systems

A worker on Tuesday paints physical distancing markers on seats and train floors in preparation for the lifting of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in Metro Manila. The transportation department issued a guideline for public transport operations mandating 1-meter physical distancing in trains and stations to prevent the spread of COVID-19 with the scheduled lifting of the ECQ on May 15.

Railway systems are expected to operate within 10-13 percent of its current capacity, accommodating 43 passengers per train car for LRT-1, 40 passengers per train car for LRT-2 and 51 passengers per train car for MRT-3.
