“We will continue to invest and improve on our transportation systems as well as pursue more projects in the years to come, so that Filipinos can gain greater access to places of work, commerce, recreation and other vital areas,” Marcos said.

“Having an effective and efficient transportation system will have multiplier effects on employment, the economy, and our society; it will also bring comfort, convenience, and an easier life for all,” he added.

The MMSP is one of the ambitious undertakings green-lighted by former President Rodrigo Duterte, whose Contract Package 101 is a joint venture between the Philippine government and the Japan International Cooperation Agency.

Once completed, the MMSP will have 17 stations connecting Valenzuela City to Pasay City. It is expected to serve over 519,000 passengers daily once it becomes operational.
