Manila Airport Informational Guide to Ninoy Aquino International Airport - NAIA (MNL) - NON OFFICIAL

Manila Airport Bus

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

airport Buses

From Manila Airport there are several local bus routes to Manila city.

Eight of them run 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 take either City Bus Route 2 or the UBE Express to get safe and sound to your destination in Manila.

In case you would like to take the jeepney, please bear in mind that Manila Airport is served by the following routes: Nichols-Vito, Cruz-EDSA-Tramo, Baclaran-MIA and Domestic Airport-Baclaran-South Pier. 

If carrying large luggage, we do not recommend this mean of transport. 

City Bus route 2 via EDSA-MIA 

Even the information displayed above regarding the local airport buses, some travelers just take the City Bus route 2 via EDSA-MIA at NAIA Airport and transfer to the LRT.

It is a cheaper option but a bit uncomfortable if carrying large luggage.


Route 2 stops at NAIA Terminal 3, outside the terminal building.


Single ticket fare is PHP 20.

Where do I buy my ticket?

Tickets are sold at the bus.

The Ultimate Bus Experience - UBE Express
