Can a senior citizen bring a family member with him/her when using express lane privileges (e.g. airports, bus terminals, etc.)?

Yes, a senior citizen can bring a family member who is not a senior citizen in the express lanes such as airports, trains, and bus terminals.

The rule is that only one family member can accompany the senior citizen. In airports, it specifically provides that only one family member can join the senior citizen in the express lane.

In trains such as MRT and LRT, priority areas are provided where the senior citizen can be accompanied by one person in the designated area. By practice though and as confirmed by guards manning the designated area, two or more persons are sometimes allowed to accompany the senior citizen in the designated area if the train is not full and the latter does not know his or her destination, otherwise, the excess accompanying person shall be asked to board in a different cabin.
