One hell of a ride: Passengers ride LRT with open doors

Cubelo’s post garnered more than 3000 reactions ranging from “haha”, “wow”, “like” to “angry”. The video has been viewed more than 150,000 times.

Two videos showing a Light Rail Transit (LRT) train car that has its door open went viral on Thursday, March 10.

19-year-old James Cubelo posted two videos he took on board the LRT 1 showing his ordeal from Central Station to EDSA Station.

“March 10, 2016 around 6PM. Sumakay kami ng friend ko sa LRT1 from Central Station. Napansin namin na hindi nag-close ang door pero tumatakbo na, nagulat na lang kami nung sinabi ni manong guard na kumapit nalang kami ng mabuti, ano to! Star City lang ang peg, ganun?” (At round 6 p.m. on March 10, 2016, my friend and I took the LRT 1 from Central Station. We noticed that the doors didn’t close but the train was already running. We were shocked when the guard just told us to hold on tight. Is this a Star City ride?)


It looked like Cubelo was having fun but he was far from enjoying the ride as he was scared for their safety. Cubelo and the rest of the commuters occupying the coach knew that was unsafe but they did not have choice but to continue with the ride since the train had already moved. Everyone was panicking.

The doors were finally checked and closed at Pedro Gil Station.

“Paki-explain na din po sa amin kung ano ba tlga ang purpose ng red button, kasi medyo wala po kaming alam dun noh, kahit ako, kasi ang akala ko is pag pinindot yun, bubukas lang ang pinto (which is nakabukas na nga so di nako nag-aatempt),” he said. (Please explain the purpose of the emergency button because we don’t know what it is for. As far as I know, if you press the button, the doors will open. As the door is already open, I did not attempt to press it.)

The management of LRT 1 has issued a statement apologizing to passengers while asserting that its policy that no train with a door fault should live the station.
