DOTr appeals to the people about PNR Trains' safety

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) is one with the Philippine National Railways (PNR) in strongly condemning the stone throwing incidents which have damaged our trains, and are potentially putting the commuter in harm’s way.

We are now closely coordinating with the proper law enforcement authorities to immediately investigate and hold responsible these hooligans and misfits.

The TRAINS are owned by the Filipino people, and we all should do our part in helping their maintenance and upkeep, and help ensure that we protect these infrastructure investments so that majority of our fellow citizens may enjoy their long term use.


These recent stone-throwing reports that have damaged our refurbished trains are indeed disturbing, and disruptive of the operations of the PNR, which has been striving to revitalize this important mass transportation alternative. To date, there have been 14 incidents of stone-throwing recorded from December 2 to 21, 2019 alone.

Fortunately, the new trains from Indonesia were not one of those which were damaged, though there were serious attempts to damage the same by dumping debris along its path.

As we institute measures to reinforce protection of public property, we would also like to seek the cooperation of the public to help us in reporting these dangerous misdeeds.  Your support and assistance will go a long way in helping us put a stop to this nonsensical activity that only endangers lives and property.

There is no place in society for these dastardly acts, especially at a time when when your government is doing everything it can to provide the riding public with modern transport infrastructure.
