Pasig Line



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.

  1. Hi
    I believe the bridge of spain and the jones bridge is one and the same. The southern terminus of the line is unclear as to its exact location.
    Actually all the trams did well as they went through strategically important locations namely the big churches and Pasig was pretty well settled at that time. It it true that this was the longest of all of the Meralco lines? The museum has some interesting pictures along the line as some of it was not street running but center median running.

  2. PS my guess would be at the junction of the street that Kalaayan turns into in Buting and Almeda that goes over the bridge in 1 direction and towards Pateros in the other.
