Manila Airport (NAIA) Transportation: Bus, Taxi


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).


Those travelling by city bus routes may take a bus plying the EDSA-MIA route. These buses will pass Terminals 1 and 2, while a jeepney route can take you to Terminal 3.



Manila airport is also connected to the Manila Light Rail Transit System (LRT) Line 1 by a two-kilometer taxi ride to Baclaran station.


In the future, with the extension of the existing Yellow Line (L1), a new station, Manila International Airport station, is set to connect the airport, albeit still indirectly, to the LRT1.

Philippine Airlines operates an airside shuttle service between Terminals 2 and 3 for travelers connecting to onward PAL Express flights and vice versa.
