The Manila Metro Rail Transit System Line 8, or MRT-8 (formerly designated as MRT-9, now designated to Metro Manila Subway Line 9), also known as PNR East-West Line, is a proposed rapid transit line in the Philippines. It will be a nine-kilometer railway system connecting Sampaloc, Manila and Diliman, Quezon City via, Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon Avenue, and España Boulevard. The unsolicited proposal for the project was submitted to the Philippine government by Malaysia-based construction engineering company AlloyMTD group in 2016,[1][2] and is awaiting for approval by the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA). According to MTD Philippines, Inc. President Patrick Nicholas David, the project will cost PHP 60 billion.[3]


Line 8 will have 11 stations, all of which are located in Quezon City and Manila.
