It also explained that “the required rolling stock of 108 cars have been completed, and are awaiting shipment pending the availability of the depot/holding area.”

MRT-7 is expected to be completed by 2021. The 22-kilometer line is predicted to shorten travel time between Quezon City and San Jose Del Monte in Bulacan from 2-3 hours to just 35 minutes.
