In a Facebook post on Thursday, the Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA) said: “Ayon sa pamunuan ng LRTA, ang libreng sakay sa LRT-2 ay para makapagbigay ng inspirasyon sa mga solo parent na mag-isang itinataguyod ang kanilang pamilya.”

(According to the management of LRTA, the free rides on LRT-2 are intended to inspire solo parents who single-handedly support their families.)

Republic Act No. 11861, or the Expanded Solo Parents Welfare Act, declares every third week and third Saturday of April as Solo Parents Week and National Solo Parents’ Day, respectively.
