The Light Rail Management Corporation (LRMC), the operator of Light Rail Transit Line 1 (LRT-1), today advised passengers to avoid forcibly opening train doors.

The LRMC made the public advisory after one of the doors of a train failed to close while running from V. Cruz Station to Quirino Station.

Based on the LRMC investigation, the unidentified passenger forcefully opened the train door when it did not immediately open upon stopping at V. Cruz station at around 6:57 PM last Monday (November 27) night, allowing passengers to board the train.

However, the door failed to close upon departure from V. Cruz station. According to the other passengers, the passenger who forcefully opened the door got off at Quirino Station.

The LRMC management has instructed all guards at the station platforms to strictly implement the “no forcible opening of doors” policy to avoid similar incidents that may potentially put the lives of passengers at risk.

LRMC pointed out that forcibly opening doors is causing train failures, both in LRT-1 and Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3). This may lead to door mechanism failures, which is the top 3 cause of train failure and unloading incidents.
