Manila LRT Yellow Line

The Manila Light Rail Transit System Line 1 is the first metro line of the Manila Light Rail Transit System. Presently, the line contains twenty stations and runs over twenty kilometers of fully elevated track. As the name implies, the line is colored yellow (old) and green (new) on all LRT maps.

The line runs in a general north-south direction from Baclaran to Monumento; then, it runs in an east-west direction from Monumento to North Avenue, linking the cities of Quezon City, Caloocan, Manila, Pasay, and Paranaque. Passengers can transfer to the Purple Line at Doroteo Jose station, while passengers can transfer to the Blue Line at EDSA and North Avenue stations.

The Line 1 was known for many names such as LRT Line 1, shortened to LRT-1, Yellow Line (SRTS), Green Line (2012), or the Metrorail. However, the yellow color of the line dates back to its opening in 1984.

Famous quotes containing the words line and/or yellow:

    The line of separation was very distinct, and the Indian immediately remarked, “I guess you and I go there,—I guess there’s room for my canoe there.” This was his common expression instead of saying “we.” He never addressed us by our names, though curious to know how they were spelled and what they meant, while we called him Polis. He had already guessed very accurately at our ages, and said that he was forty-eight.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Mr. Chadband is a large yellow man, with a fat smile, and a general appearance of having a good deal of train oil in his system.
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)
