Overcrowding on the rail service along EDSA is currently recieving much discussion, as is ways in which it can be relieved.
Excessive growth of passengers over the years has far exceeded what the MRT can reasonably cope with, especially in peak period times.
Even in 'more quiet' periods of the day these vehicles can be packed to the rafters with locals.
I was recently forced to be crammed into a full train around 12pm, crushed in between about eight beautiful Pinays who seemed to be headed for their lunch break.
Not that this was not a truly enjoyable experience! Hmmmm indeed, perhaps they should leave the overcrowding issues for us derelict old Aussies with an appreciation for the Pinay beauty :-)
