Okay lets call the LRT underground parts subway too since he insists on that. No problem. Both Manila and Jakarta already has subways. Fine!

Maybe what he means is the fastfood chain Subway!. Oh yeah go on Landove. Get it on!

If you are attentively getting your attention to details, you already have had your answers. If your watch the videos youd certainly know. "ARRIVING AT KATIPUNAN STATION, paparating na sa Katipunan Station". I dont know what kind of person are you. You want to see is to believe then come back visit Manila again, I'll tour you for free.

Yes the station including a substantial length of tracks of it runs with underground tunnel. It isnt circular shape as one done by TBM but it runs and is underground tunnel. Again, UNDERGROUND TUNNEL!

The trains in Manila clearly run below ground. Now you're adding things

LOL
Up to you lah. If it makes you happy and proud to call a train, just because having few underground stations, but run on the surface (above ground level) most of the time in between as a SUBWAY.

Answer my previous question first, does those stations connected fully by underground tracks. Anyway how long is the "substantial length" you are bragging about? Does it even reach 1 km?

But it's okay for me if you wanna shamelessly call it a SUBWAY though. LOL

^ We never called it a subway. You did. Your criteria was "runs below the surface/ground level (underground)" So by YOUR criteria, Manila already has a subway. Unless I just imagined the train going underground. I've ridden it many times

Yeah, the same way you keep on claiming shamelessly that you have subway.

In fact you don't even have the Subway foodchain there lol while Phils has 11, hahaha.

https://www.subway.com/en-PH/FindAStore

Btw, here's how a subway is defined.

sub·way
/ˈsəbˌwā/
noun
noun: subway; plural noun: subways
1.
NORTH AMERICAN
an underground electric railroad.
synonyms: underground railway, underground, metro; informaltube

2.
BRITISH
a tunnel under a road for use by pedestrians.
synonyms: underpass, underground passage, pedestrian tunnel, tunnel

With both definitions, Manila definitely has subways, either by North American or British standards.


(an underground electric railroad/line)



(a tunnel under a road for use by pedestrians)






But anyway, we wont shamelessly claim we have Subway even though we have every right to say we have. we'll have to wait once the Metro Manila subway partially opens 2022, completely opens by 2025 and the Makati subway to be completed. Goodluck on your subway, lol!
