The Philippine National Railways (PNR) will implement a PhP5 fare increase starting today. The minimum fare for the first 14 kilometers would now be PhP15 instead of PhP10. Every succeeding zone equivalent to seven kilometers would be charged PhP5. This means that the maximum fare for the Manila-Cabuyao (Tutuban-Mamatid) route would now be at PhP55 instead of PhP40.

The fare hike would be the first time that the PNR would increase its fare in over 20 years. The increase is based on a PNR board resolution dated December 2014 aimed at increasing the revenue for the financially challenged state-run train system. The adjustment was supposed to be implemented in 2015. However, this was postponed due to consumer backlash and the concurrent fare hikes in the Manila Light Rail Transit System (LRT) and the Manila Metro Rail Transit System (MRT).

The PNR is the oldest train system in the country. It began as Ferrocarril de Manila-Dagupan during the Spanish era and was founded in 1946 through Republic Act No. 4156. Currently, the PNR has six trains, covers 25 stations, and is used by approximately 45,000 passengers daily.
