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 yellow and/or line:
“When three persons are of the same mind, yellow dirt can be turned into gold.”
“Their bodies are buried in peace; but their name liveth for evermore.”
—Apocrypha. Ecclesiasticus, 44:14.
The line their name liveth for evermore was chosen by Rudyard Kipling on behalf of the Imperial War Graves Commission as an epitaph to be used in Commonwealth War Cemeteries. Kipling had himself lost a son in the fighting.
