    Jeepney is Everywhere

    by 05nov05 Updated Apr 16, 2007

    Jeepney is everywhere in Cagayan de Oro, fare is only P6/person. However, if you're in a hurry and don't mind shelling out more for transpo, taxi cabs are also plenty. Taxi cabs in cdo were mostly toyota altis, nissan and avanza.

    I could also recommend, Arnel. He could tour you around Camiguin with his Multicab. I'm just not sure how much.

    the Motorela

    by mai_oh_mai Updated Mar 1, 2007

    Tricycles in Cagayan de Oro are known as motorelas or "rela", for short. Its seating arrangement is very different from its Luzon counterparts because instead of a sidecar, the passengers sit jeepney style, behind the driver. A rela can seat 6 passengers. Some enterprising drivers accommodate small passengers in the "front seat" --- that teeny tiny space on either side of the driver seat. Most relas in CDO can take you around the city proper for a flat rate of Php 5.00 per passenger regardless of the route it takes to accommodate all the passengers' destinations. Relas may cross major roads, e.g. A.Velez St. and Recto (National Highway) but aren't allowed to traverse these roads and bridges.

    City Streets

    by agido Updated Feb 25, 2007

    Jeepneys are the most popular mode of transport around the city. It is the cheapest. But like any other modern cities, there are also taxis here. In fact, the taxis that roam around here are better than taxis in Davao. The most luxurious taxi is "Altis." Traffic is now a problem here because the city never ceases to progress. Many and many are coming here.

    Taxis from the airport

    by DarleneCMF Written Dec 30, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can get a taxi from CdO's Lumbia airport just outside the terminal building. Although there are warnings about flag-down and meter rates, the driver will insist on a fixed amount because 'they have to pay the association everytime they queue up at the airport.'

    We were billed P250 from airport to the Bulua bus terminal, which they say is the 'standard rate.' The driver even said 'wa pa ni Pinaskuhan ma'am?' Which translates to tip since it's Christmas. We said no since the fare was already expensive...

    Motorbike to Malasag Gardens

    by monina_c Written Aug 27, 2006

    Motorbikes are one of the means to get to and from Malagos Gardens in CDO. As you can see from the picture, a helmet is not required. :) You can hire a motorbike from the turn-off from the main round to get to the Park. It is an exciting way to get there.

    CDO Airport

    by limledi Updated May 12, 2010

    CDO Airport is a bit far from the city center. It will costs you about P300 for a taxi ride to the center. If you're on a budget, there are jeepneys far cheaper than the taxi passing by the airport.

    Cebu Pacific Air

    by limledi Updated May 12, 2010

    Cebu Pacific Air now offers direct Cebu-Cagayan de Oro flights. Best to book earlier specially during the promo period to get really cheap fares costing only around P500 one way.
