The Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA)-based Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT3) starts its 24-hour run Monday to provide an alternative mode of transportation for call center agents and others who work during odd hours of the night.

Two trains will be deployed for a 30-minute headway according to the MRT3 website (dotcmrt3.gov.ph), for the extended run from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.

The MRT3 serves the North Avenue, Quezon City-Taft Ave., Pasay route.

MRT3 general manager Reynaldo I. Berroya said the firm will deploy more security guards and have the stations fully lighted to ensure security during the extended hours of operation.

"Security guards will be on board the trains to protect passengers," Berroya said.

The 24/7 operation of the MRT3, he said, is "consistent with the covenant of President Arroyo with business process outsourcing (BPO) agents to assist them by providing a safe, fast, and economical transport services," noting that at this period, most buses and jeepneys are in their garages already.

Call center agents finish their shifts at about midnight and at 4 a.m.
