NAIA-Makati-Fort Bonifacio will be connected by a new train line

According to the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA), there’s a new commuter trai line that will soon connect the Fort Bonifacio and Makati central business districts to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

Felicito Payumo (BCDA Chairman), said that the government firm was recently approached by a foreign group that studies about the construction of a new monorail system. The project will be pursued through the public-private partnership concept supported by the Aquino administration before it was proposed by the American Chamber of Commerce (Amcham).

If this project will be encouraged, it will address the growing demands of the citizens’ transport system. The new train line will be called the Makati-Taguig-Pasay Monorail Alignment. It will be link to Metro Rail Transit (Taft to North Avenue), the Light Rail Transit line 1 (Baclaran to Roosevelt) and the Philippine National Railways (PNR) system, that cuts across Metro Manila to the Southern Luzon regions.

BCDA issued a statement last Monday from Payumo saying:
The interconnection is envisioned to form a loop around the projected service areas covered by the three rail transit systems.”

They still reviewing the project and more details will be announced once there are certainties in the said deal, like signing the project’s proponents. BCDA didn’t revealed the name of the foreign company that proposed in building the said new train line.
