Public transport in Metro Manila
As of 2015[update], there are two different rapid transit systems in Metro Manila: the Manila Light Rail Transit System, or the LRTA System, and the Manila Metro Rail Transit System, or the MRTC System. The Green Line (LRT-1) and the Blue Line (LRT-2) form the LRTA network, while the Yellow Line (MRT-3) forms the MRTC network, with 29 stations on the LRTA and 13 stations on the MRTC. Four more lines are proposed and would connect Metro Manila to the provinces of Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna and Rizal upon their completion.

The Manila Metro Rail Transit System has a single line, MRT-3 or the Yellow Line.
Manila has many metrobus companies such as Erjohn & Almark, Baclaran Metro Link and AC Trans. These use Japanese buses (especially Isuzu or Nissan Diesel) converted to Left-hand drive. As such, the rear and emergency doors are swapped.
