The Philippine National Railways (PNR) has commenced works on the 147.26-km-long North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) Project linking Clark City, Metro Manila and Calamba City. Also known as the Clark-Calamba railway, the project is expected to cost around PHP873.62 billion and will be financed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

Acciona-DMCI and Leighton-First Balfor joint venture (LFBJV) will oversee the construction of elevated tracks for commuters as well as ground-level tracks for freight transport. Sumitomo Corporation and Japan Transport Engineering Company will supply a fleet of 13 electric multiple units (EMUs) with 13 cars each for the line.

Works on the line are expected to be concluded by 2029. Once operational, the NSCR line is expected to transport around 800,000 passengers per day. Travel time between Clark City and Calamba will be reduced from the current four hours to just 120 minutes.
