MANILA – Not again.

Hundreds of Metro Rail Transit (MRT-3) passengers were dismayed when a sudden technical glitch caused one of the trains to malfunction Tuesday noon at the MRT North Avenue Station.

Several passenger accounts said that they were told to alight the train just after going through the doors.

Passengers, mostly on their way to work, were forced to take other forms of transportation.

According to reports, only five MRT-3 trains are plying the route instead of the usual 10 to 15 trains as of 12:00nn today.

The MRT Management is yet to release any formal statement about the incident as of posting.
