LRT vs. MRT: What’s the difference?
Speaking of traffic, I’m now considering other modes of transportation. Jeepneys are out as I get too confused about which route it’s taking. Ditto with buses. With all those email warnings I’ve received, taking a taxi now scares me, unless I’m with a bunch of people. That leaves LRT. Or MRT. I used to think they’re both the same animal being saddled with two names until someone pointed out that that there is an LRT rail while this here is an MRT rail, etc. so yeah, you can imagine how dumb I felt.
What’s the difference anyway? Is one more high-end than the other, and thus more expensive? How much exactly? Do they take different routes? If I were to go from Binondo to the Ayala Center, Makati, which one would be wiser to hop on?
Any comment, comparisons, etc., will be more than welcome. I’m already getting so excited about this that I keep having romantic visions of myself writing in a journal and taking pictures of the other passengers while riding the train. Heheh.
