LOOK: MRT running with open door (video)

Another MRT technical glitch happened last night along Magallanes station. It was running with open door due to alleged broken sensor. Watch the video captured by a netizen.

MANILA - The Metro Rail Transit (MRT) continues to have operation problems one after another. This time, a video was uploaded in social media showing an MRT door was widely open while the train is running along Magallanes.

According to the MRT spokesman Hernando Cabrera, this incident is mostly likely due to a malfunctioned sensor. The train immediately stopped when this glitch occurred then the operator closed the door, but it reopened once the train started running again.

Cabrera said that all passengers were ordered to get off at Magallanes station and the problematic coach was sent to the MRT depot for further investigation.

Last August 13, 2014, the MRT went off track and slammed the barrier in Taft Station. This continued technical issues push commuters to take alternatives and ask the LRTA management to address the issue seriously.

Netizens are also challenging the government officials to ride the MRT during rush hours so they can experience the inconvenience brought by these operation glitches. They are campaigning the #MRTChallenge in the Internet.

Check this video captured by a netizen showing the MRT running with widely open door.

RIDING MRT-3 WITH OPEN DOORS.

Sept. 2, 2014; around 8:40pm.

I was about to go home from my internship in Makati when I rode this MRT train from Buendia Station. I thought it will operate just fine and safe. But this terrible thing happened.

The train suddenly stopped right in the steel railroad midway to Boni Station from Guadalupe Station. The train operator announced that he stopped because a door was not fully and securely closed at Guadalupe Station. The train stopped around 20-30 minutes with the train operator trying to fix the problem by resetting the engines thrice and manually opening and closing the train doors. But unfortunately, he failed to do so.

But the next thing he did was unpredictable and kinda life-threatening. He started the engine, opened the doors of the train, and drove it like nothing happened. As you can see in the video, the people right before the opened doors showed their utmost disappointment about it and even made fun from it by shouting that the MRT train is greatly damaged and yelling at the innocent sidewalkers along EDSA. But right before we reach Boni Station, the operator said that we will evacuate the train once we reached the station. And so we did evacuate, lined long at the station, and rode another train with additional pushing and pain until i took off the train in Cubao Station.

Personally, i am traumatized even a little bit because what the train operator did risked the safety and security of the passengers. I felt like i am an extra in an action movie scene waiting for me to jump from the train or whatever. But i am so thankful to the Lord that i now got home safe and sound. The thing is, this is such a super no no for MRT. It seems like they are really after the profit they can get and not the safety and security of the passengers patronizing it with all the mishaps that are happening to it recently. Are the management solving these situations? Do they even have the heart to? From what I saw and experienced, I kinda don't think so. =S

TO THE MANAGEMENT OF MRT:
Please implement a permanent solution to these recurring problems. Else, i'm sure there will come a time that nobody will ride your damaged trains anymore because their trust are already broken to you. Act what's for the common good and not for your personal interests. And i do really hope that this will NEVER EVER HAPPEN AGAIN. (with a two thumbs down) =|

PLEASE SHARE THIS SO AS TO EVERYONE WILL KNOW WHAT IS THE CURRENT CONDITION OF MRT-3 NOWADAYS. =S
