Looking for more options to go to Manila airports via commute? As of writing, there are P2P buses (UBE Express), taxis, and hailing apps available for commuters. But accessing the airports will now be easier once the LRT-1 Cavite Extension Project operates in 2024. Know more about it here:
LRT-1 Cavite Extension Project
Beginning its construction in 2019, the LRT-1 Cavite Extension Project will add eight new stations, increasing to 28 from 20. Starting from Fernando Poe Jr. Station (formerly Roosevelt Station) in Quezon City, the train line passes through cities such as Manila, Pasay, Caloocan, and all the way to Bacoor, Cavite.
Phase 1 of the 11-kilometer extension is expected to service up to 800,000 passengers per day. It will have the following stops:
- Redemptorist Station
- MIA Station
- Asia World Station
- Ninoy Aquino Station
- Dr. Santos or Sucat Station in San Dionisio, Parañaque.
From a statement in April 2023, the Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) shared that the extension is already 82.7 percent complete. It’s set to start commercial operations in the fourth quarter of 2024.
Once construction is done, the extension will down travel time from Pasay to Cavite from one hour and a half to 20 minutes.
How to get to NAIA via LRT in 2023
If you don’t have a lot of luggage when traveling, taking the train might be a good option for you. According to Moovit, the nearest train stations to NAIA Terminal 3 are Taft Avenue MRT and Baclaran, LRT-1’s last stop.
From Baclaran, there are buses and jeepneys that pass by NAIA.
