2nd Year #ABSCBN Shutdown


On May 5, 2020 ABS-CBN officially went of air. 
 
The congressional franchise expired on May 4, 2020, as the Philippines was dealing with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and under ECQ. The following day, the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) then issued a cease-and-desist order demanding ABS-CBN to cease all of its free TV and radio broadcasting immediately. ABS-CBN complied and signed off all of its radio stations and free television channels later that day.

Free rides in MRT, extended!




Free rides in the MRT-3 has been extended to May 30, 2022, according to an announcement by the Department of Transportation (DoTr) and MRT-3 Management on the DOTr MRT-3 Facebook page.

Passengers will be able to continue enjoying free rides at the rehabilitated MRT-3 line until 30 May 2022, anytime between the rail line’s operating hours from 4:40 a.m. and 10:10 p.m.

DOTr Secretary Art Tugade said the extension of the FREE RIDE program hopes to continue ease the financial burden of commuters amid inflation and rising fuel prices, especially with more workers returning to on-site work.
