The Philippines Department of Transportation (DoT) says all 34 elevators and 44 of 46 escalators serving Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT3) are operational, GMA News reported in June. Prior to work performed by contractor Sumitomo-Mitsubishi Heavy Industries-TES Philippines Inc., only 19 of 46 escalators and 27 of 34 elevators were operational.
