Quezon City Transportation

  • davidjo's Profile Photo

    by davidjo Updated Apr 3, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are 100's of bus companies in Metro Manila and they nearly all have their own bus stations except for the integrated bus station at Coastal Mall. This makes it write difficult to find the correct bus station because the one bus company may have a bus station an many of the different cities of Metro Manila. They may even have two bus stations in the same city but each bus station may have buses that depart to different parts of the country and not available at both stations. This makes life difficult. However as there is almost no trains in the country you should not have to wait long before catching a bus to your destination. In Quezon city you will be able to find around 20 bus stations along EDSA.

    Try to find websites like the links below that will give you schedule, fares and address of stations

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Quezon City there are penalties for dropping litter so please dispose of your trash in the garbage cans that are few and far between. All the shopping malls have trash cans. The city employs environmental police but each of the 142 barangays (political divisions of the city) has its own members to chase and apprehend the litterbugs. There is also a competition to find the cleanest barangay in the city which should encourage local residents to stop littering.

    FINES---1st offense---warning for visitors or general public
    2nd offense--500 pesos
    3rd offense---2,000 pesos

    FINES FOR VENDORS----1st offense----500 pesos
    2nd offense---1,000 pesos
    3rd offense---2,000 pesos

    NOTE
    Recyclable materials make up 39% of the city's waste which constitutes 736 tons of garbage that may end up in the city's sanitary landfill.

Quezon City Off The Beaten Path

  • AN UNUSUAL MODERN CASTLE

    We came across this rather strange looking castle while we were on our way to see if the LVN Studio Museum was still operating, so we had to stop and investigate. Apparently the castle was a school of baking and confectionery arts and charged a hefty 3,000 pesos for a day's course, with several summer classes offered on every Saturday. Inside the...

  • KUAN YIN TEMPLE-----LOTUS CHARITY CENTER

    We were just returning to EDSA in Cubao after visiting a couple of other attractions and we came across this temple, the gates were open so we had a quick look inside. It seems that a charity organisation is involved with this Buddhist Temple and they helped out considerably when typhoon Yolanda ripped through the Philippines a few months ago....

  • UNKNOWN TEMPLE

    We came across this Chinese Temple while wandering along Tauzon Boulevard, and turned left into Benitez Street in Cubao, Quezon City, but we were unable to get in as the two gates were locked and the only sign was in Chinese. I think it might be a private temple or even open at a certain time on a particular day of the week. Unfortunately i have...

Quezon City Favorites

    Favorite thing: You can find anything in Quezon City, from schools, shops, old churches, universities, and hidden parks not yet published.

    Fondest memory: The best memory I had of Quezon City was the night life with my family and friends during the holidays.

    A. Going Alone

    Traveling is fun, even if you are just riding a jeep. It is always best to plan the trip to eliminate foul-ups, snafus or mix-ups which could always ruin or defeat the purpose of the trip.

    After determining the place to visit, find out what tourist spots and places of interest are nearby, those which could be visited within the day or if far from the place you intend to use as your base, how many days are needed for the trip to and from the identified spots. Find out what types of activities are available and the cost, if any, the availability of reliable guides and where to lodge when you do out of town trips.

    Next find out how to go there. What means of transportation to use, (public transport or own car?). These data could very well be provided by your travel agent ,complemented by some authentic sources in the internet.

    B. Traveling with Friends

    Surely this could be one of your enjoyable trips. Just to avoid conflicts and arguments later on, be sure to do the planning with your friends. Agree on what place to use as base, what “in-base” and “out-base” places to visit, how to go there, where to stay, where to eat, how costs will be shared and who brings what.

    C. Traveling with your family

    This trip could be the most awaited travel of the entire family. Chances are, it is only now that the schedule of each member of the family was able to jibe. This is not an easy task to do of course. Therefore, people should really plan the trip if possible to the smallest detail, to avoid, if not totally eliminate, any and all possible hitches, and enjoy every bit of touring around, Q.C.
