MANILA Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3) will offer free rides to Filipino seafarers on Tuesday in celebration of the International Day of the Seafarer.
In its advisory on Monday, the MRT-3 management said the free rides will be provided from 5:30 am until the end of its regular operations at 10:30 pm.
