The Department of Transportation (DOTr) MRT-3 reminds passengers to claim their seized liquid items such as water containers, colognes, hand sanitizers, lotions etc. 14 days before they will permanently be disposed by the MRT-3 management.
Passengers would only need to show one valid ID to the station supervisor at the station control room of any MRT-3, LRT-2 stations to claim the said confiscated item.
The DOTr-MRT 3 has already lifted the ban on liquid items in all their stations, but security personnel would need to verify the said items before allowing the passenger to enter the station. — Aileen Cerrudo
