The Philippine National Railways will now be traveling between Calamba and Lucena.
The PNR relaunched its Calamba-Lucena-Calamba line on Thursday, which means that there are now routes between Laguna and Quezon.
The reopened line would cater to commuters from Calamba, San Pablo, and Lucena, and would cut short travel time to and from these areas.
The morning trip from Lucena station is at 4:50 a.m., while the last trip from Calamba is at 6:30 p.m.
A trip from Lucena to Calamba is two hours and 33 minutes, while the trip from Lucena to San Pablo is one hour and 32 minutes.
The minimum fare from Lucena to San Pablo is P15, while the minimum fare from Lucena to Calamba is P20.
The line will make stops at Pansol, Masili, Los Banos, College, IRRI, Tiaong (Lalig), Candelaria, Lutucan, and Sariaya.
The main stations are in Lucena, San Pablo, and Calamba.
Transportation Secretary Jaime Bautista said the project would open up more tourism opportunities and would make traveling between provinces faster.
“This railway will offer safe, affordable, convenient, and comfortable transport to Filipinos, while accelerating the country’s economic rebound,” he said.
