MANILA – Operations of the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) were affected on Monday morning due to a technical problem, the rail system management said.

MRT Manager Al Vitangcol said MRT 3 went on "provisional operation" due to problems encountered by the MRT's communication and signaling system.

Only trips between North Avenue and Shaw Boulevard Stations, both southbound and northbound, were operational from 7 a.m. until 9:30 a.m.

MRT passengers, some rushing to their work and class, had no choice but to take other means of transportation because of the glitch. – report from Dexter Ganibe, dzMM
