Metrorail spokesperson, Riana Scott, says that they do not have a date for when services will be operational again but await the go-ahead from the Department of Transport.

“As soon as Prasa is given permission to resume Metrorail services, commuters can expect service, determined by Level 2 alert regulations,” she says.

“Revised timetables, hours of operation, number of trains, and the number of tickets that will be sold at respective stations will be publicised once the Minister of Transport announces the service resumption details. The train fares will remain the same.”

Since the start of the national lockdown, all forms of transport has been put at a halt, with the exception of taxis and e-hailing services who were operating during certain times to accommodate essential workers.

Since the easing in of alert level 3, most transport services have been made available except for Metrorail, who have been busy testing the readiness of their services

Metrorail caters for up to 2 million commuters nationwide.
