New airconditioned coaches of the PNR have started passenger service from Tutuban to Bicutan. From Tutuban, the trains pass through stations in España, Sta. Mesa, Buendia, FTI and then to Bicutan.  Minimum fare is P10 while fare for the entire route is P15.  The entire trip takes only about 37 minutes.  

The train service schedule is currently limited to trips at 6am and 3:30pm.  This frequency will increase when more new trains arrive and are deployed along the line.
