The Manila Light Rail Transit Phase 2 of the Manila Light Rail Transit System Line 1 South Extension (LRT-1 Extension), this line is planned to link the suburban city of Dasmariñas to the future Manila LRT-1 extension at Niog station in Bacoor. Its path would run along a north-south axis over a length of 19 kilometres (12 mi). Its proposed right-of-way alignment is along Aguinaldo Highway from Niog in Bacoor to Governor's Drive in Dasmariñas.[1]

The LRT-6 project will cost an estimated PHP64 billion or US$1.42 billion.[1] It was approved by the Investment Coordination Committee–Cabinet Committee (ICC-CABCOM) of the National Economic and Development Authority last April 2015 as a public–private partnership project.[2] When completed, it is expected to significantly reduce the volume of vehicular traffic in the Cavite area and improve passenger mobility in the southern parts of the metropolis.

Proposed stations[edit]

The project involves the construction of 6 elevated stations along Aguinaldo Highway (listed from north to south):

Station City
Tirona Bacoor
Imus Imus
Daang Hari
Salitran Dasmariñas
Congressional Avenue
Governor's Drive
