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:
“If surrealism ever comes to adopt a particular line of moral conduct, it has only to accept the discipline that Picasso has accepted and will continue to accept.”
—André Breton (18961966)
“The prairies were dust. Day after day, summer after summer, the scorching winds blew the dust and the sun was brassy in a yellow sky. Crop after crop failed. Again and again the barren land must be mortgaged for taxes and food and next years seed. The agony of hope ended when there was not harvest and no more credit, no money to pay interest and taxes; the banker took the land. Then the bank failed.”
—Rose Wilder Lane (18861968)
