MANILA -- The third set of trains built by China's Dalian Corp was deployed to the MRT tracks on Wednesday, the Department of Transportation said.

The train set will serve commuters from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. from Wednesday until Feb. 1, the DOTr said. The vehicle completed recently its 1,000-kilometer commissioning test.

The first train set from Dalian was deployed on Oct. 27 to Nov. 21, 2018, while the second set was deployed on Dec. 11 to 23 also last year, the DOTr said.
