Billionaire Andrew Tan's Infracorp. Development Inc. may soon be building a P3-billion monorail linking Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig to Guadalupe, Makati. 

The 2-kilometer Makati-Taguig Skytrain will cut travel time between the Guadalupe MRT station to BGC to 5 minutes, from around 10-30 minutes by car depending on traffic. 

The monorail will take 2 years to build and could be opened as early as 2021 if construction starts before the end of the year, said Infracorp. President Kevin Tan.

The project, which will connect the Makati and Taguig financial districts, will benefit 60,000 to 100,000 commuters daily.
