Private operator of LRT-1 Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) remains committed in providing a safe, reliable, efficient, and comfortable journey as it offers its passengers convenient transport feeder service to and from select LRT-1 stations thru LRT-1 Riders Club.
Members of LRT-1 Riders Club are entitled to different membership benefits, such as unlimited shuttle service rides with route from Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX) to Ayala Malls Circuit Makati and vice versa with designated loading and unloading points in Mall of Asia area and Makati Central Business District linking to LRT-1 EDSA and Gil Puyat stations.
This initiative is in partnership of LRMC with Global Electric Transport (GET) Philippines, a Mobility-as-a-Service company engaged in providing a world-class, emissions-free transport system.
The shuttle service features the Community Optimized Managed Electric Transport (COMET)—a world-class, air-conditioned, fully electric, and zero-emission minibus with a capacity of 30 passengers and travel range of over 100 kilometers on a single full charge.
It is also equipped with on-board cameras, media system, display monitors, Internet connectivity, as well as wheelchair slot and retractable electric ramp for Persons with Disabilities.
“At LRMC, we are always on the lookout on how we can better serve our passengers and make their commute more convenient. LRT-1 passengers get to enjoy the first end-to-end emissions-free transport system in the Philippines as both LRT-1 and COMET help in reducing carbon footprint.
LRMC has made a commitment to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions, and part of this is adopting the use of digital management systems and promoting zero-emission transport solutions. Our partnership with GET aligns well with LRMC’s sustainability initiatives, and is anchored on UN Sustainable Development Goal 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities) and Goal 13 (Climate Action),” LRMC President and CEO Juan F. Alfonso shared.
LRT-1 passengers can enjoy these benefits and more by signing up to become members of the LRT-1 Riders Club on the GETPASS App available for download on Google Play and App Store.
Membership passes for the LRT-1 Riders Club come in the following amounts and validity of unlimited rides: Bronze—P50 (1 day pass), Silver—P150 (1 week pass), and Gold—P500 (1 month pass). The membership pass also provides access to ride the COMET buses in other routes within the GET Philippines network.
