A yearly collaboration between the Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) and the PLDT-Smart Foundation, the special Gabay Guro-themed train has been journeying every September for the past three years.

The 2019 Gabay Guro train puts Baybayin–one of the many ancient Filipino writing systems that’s also currently enjoying a renaissance-front and center on the cars’ design, together with bugtong and literary masterpieces of notable Filipino writers like Jose Rizal, Francisco Balagtas, Leona Florentino and Andres Bonifacio.

“We’re absolutely glad to be back once again celebrating National Teacher’s Month with the Gabay Guro LRT-1 train,” said PLDT SVP and Gabay Guro chairperson Chaye Cabal-Revilla.

“We look forward to the
smiles and joy the beautiful trains give our teachers, who serve our country and society as true everyday heroes.”

“It’s an honor to continue our partnership for this excellent program that gives recognition to Filipino teachers everywhere, but also to do our part in educating all our LRT-1 passengers,” says LRMC President and CEO Juan F. Alfonso,.

Look out for the Gabay Guro train riding out on the LRT-1 tracks starting this September.

Gabay Guro is the flagship program of PLDT-Smart Foundation that provides abundant support and assistance to teachers nationwide. Building the nation one teacher at a time, Gabay Guro has seven pillars, including housing and educational facilities, scholarships, trainings, livelihood programs, broadband and computerization, teachers’ tribute, and innovation.
