MANILA, Philippines — The Metro Rail Transit line 3 (MRT-3) suffered a second glitch as one of its trains unloaded 350 passengers on Sunday afternoon.

In an advisory, the management said that passengers disembarked at the northbound section of Ortigas Station at 2:34 p.m.

The management also noted that the glitch was due to an electrical failure in its motor caused by worn-out electrical sub-components like the main chopper, regulator, and insulator.

Affected passengers were immediately loaded into a different train a minute after the incident.


The first unloading incident happened at the southbound section of Kamuning Station at 6:27 a.m.

The glitch was also due to an electrical failure. /je
