The above map shows the Pasig Line (Purple) from Paco to Fort Mckinley (now Fort Bonifacio). The line passes through Pedro Gil, Pasig Line ane Kalayaan Ave. Bel-air Village and EDSA was constructed across the line thus ending near Rockwell and starts again on the opposite side of EDSA which is also named Kalayaan Avenue.
The street car leaves Bridge of Spain (Jones bridge) like the rest of the tram service to other parts of Manila. The route is the most profitable line of the Manila Electric Railroad Company. The line partially opened on January 6, 1908 and full operation started on June 14, 1908. The line was initially operated by the Manila Suburban Railway Company.
