Transportation in Manila


Air-conditioned buses run from the airport to the business district of Makati and along EDSA, but length of journey depends on the traffic. In the city, some bus routes are serviced by Metro Manila Transport while a dozen privately owned companies cover other areas and across Luzon.


The best way to see the tourist attractions of Manila is on foot. Intramuros and Rizal Park are pedestrianised, and there are large swathes of mall in Malate and Makati.


Taxis are available at ranks in the airport and outside major hotels. Otherwise hail them in the street and fix a rough fare to your destination before you set off – even if the taxi is metered. Air-conditioned mega-taxis hold up to ten passengers, who jump on and off at will. Traffic jams make for slow progress.

Transportation tips

Several more lines on the elevated railway have been proposed, stretching across the city from Santa Cruz in Manila to Quezon City. Last journeys on the trains are at midnight. Daily tickets either cover four stops in either direction or a longer single journey. Stored-value and multiple-ride tickets are available at all stations and are valid for up to six months.
