See below the available options to transfer from Manila Airport to downtown:



From Manila airport there are nine bus routes serving to various points in Manila city.

Eight of them go via Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA), and one via Circumferential Road 5 (C-5). These routes just serve very specific locations in Manila, mostly for locals, so they are not worth for tourists.


For travelers, it is recommended to board the single bus route serving Terminal 3, Route 2, since it stops at downtown touristic locations. Frequency is of 20 minutes.


In case you would like to take the jeepney, please bare in mind that Manila Airport is served by the following routes: Nichols-Vito Cruz-EDSA-TramoBaclaran-MIA and Domestic Airport-Baclaran-South Pier. In case of carrying large luggage, we do not recommend to choose this mean of transport even its cheap price.
