Getting around in Manila

Manila’s train network is the easiest way to move around the city, as it is the only mean that is not affected by the capital’s notorious traffic. A bus network is also available, but buses are not allowed to enter the city centre.

Jeepneys are another mean of local transportation. Former US military jeeps, which have been remodelled and colourfully decorated, serve as alternative buses on fixed routes. Taxis are widely available and quite inexpensive. Short distances are also served by tricycles.
