The Manila Light Rail Transit System Line 4 (LRT-4) is a proposed rapid transit line to be built in Metro Manila and Rizal in the Philippines. Also known as the Ortigas–Taytay LRT Line, LRT-4 is planned to link suburban Taytay in Rizal to the Ortigas Center business district in eastern Metro Manila.[2] When completed, it will be the second rapid transit line serving the province of Rizal after the LRT-2 (Blue Line) which will soon be extended to Masinag in Antipolo.

The proposal, which is 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) long and consists of six stations, will have a right-of-way alignment along Ortigas Avenue and Taytay Diversion Road.[2] It will run from an interchange with Ortigas Station at Epifanio de los Santos Avenue in Quezon City in the west, to SM City Taytay in Dolores, Taytay in the east, passing through the city of Pasig and the municipality of Cainta. The LRT-4 project will cost an estimated PHP50.2 billion or US$1.1 billion.[2] It was approved by the Investment Coordination Committee (ICC) of the National Economic and Development Authority last June 2015 as a public-private partnership project.[3] When completed, it is expected to significantly reduce the volume of vehicular traffic along Ortigas Avenue and improve connectivity in the eastern parts of the metropolis, including the nearby municipalities in southern Rizal.

Proposed extensions

The line is a component of the Manila East Rail Transit Project proposed by the Japanese government in February 2015 which aims to provide a medium-capacity rail transport system connecting central and eastern Metro Manila with the province of Rizal.[4] Its proposed alignment is along Ortigas Avenue with an option to extend the line to as far east as the Rizal municipality of Angono on the Manila East Road, and west to either of the following terminals:

As of September 2015, the project was approved by Pres. Aquino [5]
