Government should do the right thing with MRT3

The government is now working to take over the MRT which is the train that runs along EDSA.  There are a lot of people that ride this train every day of the week and there are a lot of problems they need to address.  One problem they need to address is the lack of security in the train stations during rush hour.  There are a lot of shoving, pushing and mangling going on usually during 8 AM in the morning and 5 PM in the afternoon. Those are the times where it would be difficult to ride the train due to the fact that there are a lot of people there.  More security guards should be put there in order to prevent everyone from riding the train.  The government surely has enough budget to hire more people with low salaries. 

Of course, it won’t hurt to add more trains but all of them don’t necessarily need to be used all the time.  They just need to be on the move during rush hour in order to accommodate all the people who want to go to their destination right away.  The lines on each door should be fixed before the train arrives so each guard should make sure that nobody would suddenly barge in to the door and assert himself even if there is a line.  That is very rude and it would be unfair to the other passengers who fell in line for a long time.  Only time will tell if the government buying the MRT3 is a good thing or not.  Since the government has a lot of budget then it is expected to be a good thing.  However, they might not use it for the right purpose so they better be careful where they spend their money on.

  1. Agree on that, even during non-rush hours some people would deliberately cut you off from the line when it's clear that you should line up properly as you enter the train.
