We've all heard in the news as to how public mass transport systems work. There have been many debates on how to improve government-owned trains like the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) and Light Rail Transit (LRT) for the past few years.
While MRT and LRT have been the focus of rigorous discussions, we rarely hear about Philippine National Railways (PNR) which is a state-owned railway company operating in Luzon.
PNR is the oldest public mass transport system in the country which started operating on November 24, 1892.

The railway system is known to have a colorful history.
It can be observed however that because of the massive urbanization and changes with how people travel from one point to another, the PNR seem to have lost its relevance.
If you've passed by any railroad connecting PNR, you've probably noticed the informal settlers occupying the sides of rails which can be extremely dangerous especially to kids.
A video featuring how it's like to travel through PNR fast forward to today has gone viral. The video shows the passengers of the state-owned train system boarding onto the train without any platform. The video revealed how dangerous travelling through PNR could be.
Meanwhile, netizens lambasted the officials managing the system saying that such a scenery is a disgrace to Filipinos. While other said that the government should do something about the issue.
There were also those who blamed corruption in the government for the problem. -Kami Media
