According to DOTC Secretary Leandro Mendoza, the MRT will be adding more capacity (doubling it, according to them) by adding another coach to each of their 3-car trains. Approval for the project is currently awaiting the approval of the NEDA board. Read more about it here.

Finally! This will definitely be a boon to the public as ridership has increased dramatically ever since gas prices started zooming up. And, you never know, this may even lead to the eventual reduction of buses plying EDSA, which will greatly improve traffic on EDSA.

P.S. How does adding 25% more space double capacity?
